Stayed for a couple of nights and enjoyed it immensely. Fantastic location, great food, friendly staff, and such beautiful decor in the main part of the hotel. Our small inland room was comfortable although the shower was hopeless! Plenty to do - swimming (very clean outdoor heated pool), walking (the beach goes on forever, amazing), eating (lunches and dinners delicious),... More

I stayed here for 2 nights on 6&7 August and only wish it could have been longer. From the moment I arrived and the pleasant & friendly porter came across the car park to take my case and the concierge staff who greeted me I knew it was going to perfect, the reception area is immaculately clean and tastefully decorated...

I've heard quite a lot about this place and it looks great on the website. Like all things, it depends on your perspective. It's fine but a little on the dated side, having the feeling of an old cruise liner. I was in a single room, which - given the furnishings and decor - felt like a glorified pad in... More

We have three children from 7 to 12 years who made the maximum use of both the fab indoor and outdoor pools this week. The hotel also organise lots of activities for them every day, which are free. This includes a fantastic surfing lesson on the beach with the local surf school that I'd highly recommend. The manager and staff... More

We were recommended to try this hotel by friends as we didn't want the hassle of flying abroad and stayed for 5 nights. We had a sea view - must be one of the best coastal scenes in the UK and well worth the extra. The room was good and the bathroom had recently been modernised to a high standard.The... More
