This hotel has all the add-ons that a 4 star (as advertised) hotel usually boasts - fancy reception area, large dining room, bar with entertainment, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, spa facility, etc. However, the rooms are a real let down. The night before flying, I stayed at an airport hotel which is everything premier but the price and I... More

Great location for beach and town. Clean friendly hotel. Breakfast good. Better out of season as not so busy. Rooms and decor really nice and fresh only spoiled by the lumpy pillows. When clearly money has been spent on a re fit why cheap lumpy old pillows ? For me a good nights sleep is so important.

The recent improvements in the dining room are excellent - better quality produce, show cooking and more coffee machines. Our room was lovely and... More
