We stayed here for one night as part of our honeymoon. And we were not impressed. We had a really hard time even finding the hotel as it was really far from any city centre. This hotel is definetely geared more towards being a family resort more than anything, which is probably why we felt so misplaced there. It's a... More

We spent two weeks here returning home 5th Dec. Firstly the hotel, this hotel is excellently placed, right on the sea front, it has great facilities and tremendous grounds. The two pools are absolutely brilliant and spotlessly clean. We had room 142 right on the beachfront, the bed was enormous, the shower and bathroom were great. The rooms were as... More

We have just returned from a two week stay here, and couldn't fault any of the holiday. The hotel is just over 30mins from the airport, we were welcomed with a drink and hot towel, and the check-in was quick and easy. We booked a sea view bungalow which was lovely, with the most comfortable bed, and lovely sounds of... More
