The hotel was exceptionally clean and the staff very helpful and friendly, particularly at breakfast. The food at breakfast was fantastic, lots of choice and very fresh. I would definitely recommend the hotel, particularly for families.

Although buffet style, the choice seemed never-ending and there was something to please every palate. This is the first time we have stayed half-board anywhere and we were not disappointed. Our first floor room was large with a very big... More

Staff are friendly and helpful. The place is immaculate, especially given the strong winds that blow leaves all over the place, although the pool could do with some cleaning too. Very comfortable bed but tiny shower. Balcony is adequate. My only complaint really is about the provision of vegetarian food. Mostly it's fine and there's an adequate choice, but sometimes... More
