We stayed for 2 nights as we were viewing a property and this made it easy. Our room was very comfortable and extremely clean. Thanks to Voyager 220 we took some milk with us! I cannot agree with MyNixie the eggs are definitely fresh I had Dried Eggs in the gulf in the 60's! I do think it's a shame... More

A well situated spacious room at the end of a corridor with outlook on the front of hotel. Breakfast was good with great choice. The swimming pool is excellent in all respects with plenty of features. This is the second break we have had at this hotel and it has improved since last year. One concern was that our room... More

Jacuzzzi, whirlpools, steam and seawater, but too many people. The facilities just aren't equipped fo rthe number of users. Our room was pleasant with the requested ocean view. Lovely ocean view. The staff was pleasant but we had little contact. We were onour own which was just what we wanted. The seafood buffet was fine although nothing exceptional. Same with... More

There is little to complain about here.... The place was spotless and the staff were attentive and polite throughout. I agree the place was slightly clinical and appealed to an older market (I was one of the youngest there in my mid-twenties) Breakfast was fine although more hot food would be welcomed The bedroom was adequate with the fridge a...

I am happy with my stay here. I was in room number 10. Apart from a slightly noisy couple next door obviously having a spa weekend, My stay was enjoyable. The restaurant staff were more than helpful due to my lack of French. The food was really nice and well presented! I'll be back!

room was quite small for a 4star. Very white and quite clinical. But also very clean. Breakfast was passable - good were the croissants and pastries. Poor the hot food, the lack of bowls for cereal. A plus is the location, right on Sword beach. Did not use the spa but it was well used by others so looked busy.... More
