We visited her for a hangover breakfast as we had slept in for our all inclusive! Unfortunately this was our second last day of our holiday or we would have definitely been back. Breakfasts were great, good size and good value for money. You get a great view of the sea from sitting out on the balcony area. The staff... More

Great place to go for either a drink or food. The staff were very friendly and both food and drink great prices. Free wifi and me and my husband would spend the whole day in the pub on occasions as nice outside sitting and good views. Would recommend for all.

We went to the purple 7 days in a row. Some days more than just once. There was 15 in our crowd and they always made a big table for us all to sit together. The breakfast was always great and the place isn't that expensive. They have a free pool table too so I always kept myself amused there.

Friendly staff offering a good breakfast at a reasonable price... Lovely terrace with sea views... Sat in the early evening as the sun goes down with a glass of wine what can be better than that.
