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

The rooms are very good but his hotel lets itself down by constantly trying to save money, Well I think it is because I can think of no reason why they flatly refuse to turn on the centralised air conditioning when it is so hot. Another example of cost saving are the lights on the landings which you have to... More

We have stayed here before and this second time did not disappoint. Everything is well kept and the variety in the restaurant whilst not exciting does offer something for everyone and I a quite fussy. The only thing that concerns us is the pressure placed on the bar staff during the happy hour in the evening. We would not want... More
