Enjoyed our 8 day stay here. No problems with cleanliness, service, comfort or cooling all very good. The pool is small but does the job, after all the beach is just across the road. The view from the 10th floor terrace in the evening is stunning. You feel a million dollars up there but without the million dollars! The dinner... More

I loved the view from the balcony at this hotel. Amazing view over the ocean and the mountains to the right. Everything is clean and nice and the room and beds were great. The breakfast is above average without being 'great'. A couple of issues that could be worked on. A faster internet. I cannot stress this enough (as I... More

Very clean modern hotel with pool and fabulous views from roof top terrace. Good range of fresh food and lovely freshly grilled fish with delicious garlic pesto sauce each day. Sadly the veg usually overcooked. Hot puddings are way better than the cold desserts. Great location for beach and promenade strolling. The noise level goes up and the quality of... More

I can only smile as I write this review, as I am looking a picture of staff member Danny behind the front desk, he is a character, and so helpful.. I have been coming here since 2005, a lot has changed but all for the better. They seem to be upgrading all the time, furnishings, room fittings, everything is first... More
