good and comfortable hotel with total value for money. There is nothing to complain about. My family and I were totally satisfied with every aspect of the hotel, from bed to breakfast considering it was peak season (easter weekend).

Despite its location not to be considered. Starting from Reception that appeared to be disinterested and extremely slow, to the average but overpriced food this is not a hotel that can recommended. Rooms have a jaded and tacky feel. The hotel is past its prime. It has a fantastic view of the ocean but seems to sit in the middle... More

Service was excellent and the room was nicely located to the beach. The room was always neat and tidy. The location is excellent especially if you are travelling with the kids. There isn't any noise anywhere
