It took a while to find the perfect place, but what a great hotel in the end. We took a coach transfer from the airport. You arrive on the 8th floor and the view is absolutely stunning. You're right on the beach. We had a room on the side of the hotel, which was lovely, as you could still see... More

The hotel had been refurbished and our room was excellent and was kept pristine, the food was good and plenty of choice and most of the staff were the same which was really nice. The only downside to the hotel was the dining room which was open- air and for October was a mistake because it was cold and instead... More

First of all I would like to thank Marcos on reception for our stunning room allocation. We were slightly concerned when the receptionist seemed dubious that we would be pleased with our suite on the first floor, but she needn't have worried. I think people prefer higher rooms because of the views but we were happy to be within 30... More

My partner and I stayed at this hotel after the original one that we had booked was closed early. Not knowing what to expect we took a chance and we are very glad that we did. Our booking was bumped up to 'The Level' experience but we still stayed in a basic double room. From the minute we arrived we... More

Stayed for one week here. The hotel itself is lovely. Interior design beautiful. However, it seriously lacks any atmosphere. The staff are extremely rude, especially the main lobby bar staff. The dining room staff are in too much of a hurry to clear your table, on several occasions whilst still eating a female member came up and removed my plate... More

If it were not for the appalling customer service at this hotel I would have given it a higher rating. Read all the following in the knowledge that I am a member of their loyalty programme from previous visits to other hotels in their chain. I am an appalling sleeper so as usual requested a quiet room. I emailed the... More

Breakfast and dinners extremely crowded being very difficult to get a table. I checked out and left my suitcase in their storage room for less than 2 hours before heading to the airport and they gave me my suitcase back in a poor condition and completely scratched. When I complained about it, manager said they would not take any responsibility... More
