I always use Trip Advisor when choosing a hotel and therefore I like to give feedback. I don't really have anything to add;as most other reviewers have commented,I also found the hotel to be very clean,staff very friendly and helpful,and breakfast good.Yes,the hotel is modern with a rather cold,sterile feel,but it is an excellent base to explore the local area.If...

Ok, I am not going to go on too much, as I agree with the majority of positive reviews about this hotel/location I am just going to offer a few tips: If you are going to upgrade to a sea view, I suggest emailing them beforehand as I did as other people I spoke to who tried to do so... More

Stayed at Real Marina and Spa for four nights last month and had brilliant time. Okay, so the weather was fantastic for January, so could sit on the balcony enjoying the brilliant sea view which need not have been the case had the weather been less kind, but nevertheless, whatever the weather, could not fault this hotel in any way....

Having just returned from a week's stay I am delighted to say I'm firmly in the camp of being a big fan of this hotel. The hotel itself is absolutely immaculate and the staff couldn't possibly be more pleasant and helpful. I will admit to a couple of niggles: (1) 2 x single beds instead of a double, and (2)... More

Just back from a 7 night break to this lovely hotel. We went for a relaxing break and that's exactly what we got. The hotel was quiet due to the time of the season which suited us. The hotel staff were always very helpful and pleasant. The spa facilities were first class and reasonably priced. Every day they had selected... More

We arrived on a early flight and got to the hotel 10.30am, receptionist was very welcoming and helpful. Our room was ready so we could check in early which was great. We got told the indoor pool was out of action for maintenance which I know has to be done did rather annoy me. I booked this hotel as a... More

5* hotel with spa facilities. Room was good though despite several requests the extractor fans in the bathroom were never working. At one point I wondered if the sauna was a DIY job after two showers in the morning! Clean, though carpet a little stained and bathroom items not always replaced when used up. One lift was out of action... More

Just spent a week, with a friend, at this hotel. It is really good, staff are second to none. Food very good indeed. Breakfast is very wide ranging with an excellent choice of foods available. I have never seen so much scrambled egg. It was more than very impressive. There was also food in the two bars. A lounge bar... More

My partner and I stayed 1 week in mid January at a very competitive rate.This is a nice hotel with lots going for it.However, it does have a major flaw.First though,credit where credit is due: conveniently situated on the sea front and with easy parking, it has comfortable and spotlessly clean rooms with good en suite bathrooms and large, relaxing...

Indoor facilities nice we used the indoor pool a few times and rooms were lovely and spacious. Would definatly... More
