It may not be a 5* hotel but my score reflects the service and the overall score of the holiday in general. As with anything, it is what you make it.

Don't believe the negative reviews. Could not fault the hotel for the money we paid. There was a busy road to cross to go to the beach. Rooms are basic but clean. Staff are wonderful. Good food. Would go again.

We were told that we were only in this room for one night then would be able to move rooms the next day. At 3am really didn't mind just wanted somewhere to get a few hours... More

We went as a family of 6. Not bothered about going out at night or clubbing! Food was good. Chef mike looked after us. Selection of 6 or so hot dishes everyday and salads etc. Soups to die for. Breakfast more limited. Continental style with eggs most days and bacon a couple of times. These are the only hot items.... More
