After a false start (not the hotels fault) with a room offering everything it said in the brochure but not the view! We were moved the next morning to a room with a garden/pool view and this made a big difference. The staff were very helpful and the pool, which was excellent, led to the beach which we used to walk into the old town. The location meant there was no need for taxis so our weeks stay was local but varied. A week was long enough but I can imagine families with young children would love it. Don't be put off by the late night partying reputation as the hotel is sufficiently distant from the noise levels.
