A perfect family break! The staff in this hotel were fantastic! we were half board and the evening meal was fabulous. Unfortunately, the weather was not so good, but this did not prevent us from having a wonderful experience. We will definitely return in the summer and advise anyone to pay the extra for HB.

My partner & I stayed in a junior suite here for our anniversary. Our room was gorgeous and very clean - even had a jacuzzi bathtub - slippers and robes were also provided.

Following a quick visit to the bar last year and a recommendation from a friend, we (3 couples) decided to have a winter break of two weeks at the hotel. We were not disappointed, the bedrooms were splendid, a big area with a separate table and settee (superior), private balcony with an excellent view over the sea and surrounding area.... More

Food was buffet style, of a good standard and with some show case cooking for a different dish each evening. The pool areas were lovely. The weather was extremely hot when we stayed here, so finding a bed in the shade was vital. We had a couple of problems with our room initially,but these were soon resolved and we thoroughly...

Only there for 1 night, rooms were nice, but a bit dusty, will put that down to being quieter months but not worth complaining about. But probably should have mentioned it Amazing views from the suite we were in, sunsets etc Friendly staff Buffet breakfast more than ample, but never offered more coffee!

I stopped off for a night here.First impressions were a Dubai esque faux fort,but the interior had a little more authenticity. The room was excellent with a lobby and jacuzzi. All it needs for a top score is a kettle in the room.....It's a long trek to the bar.
