our 3rd year running & as we walked into reception the staff welcomed us like old friends, everything was just as we remembered it to be which is exactly why we return every year. the rooms are spacious & kept spotlessly clean by the fantastic team of cleaning ladies & along with the grounds which are beautifully landscaped it makes a terrific setting for a holiday. we stayed half board as with previous years, the breakfast selection is fantastic & guaranteed to fill you up with it's varied selection, evening meals on the other hand could do with an improvement, the selection seems to have remained the same for the past few years & for a 5 star hotel it's disappointing to see spaghetti bolognase, pizza & mini beef burgers among the options served up, i struggled some nights to find anything, fish lovers are well provided for but anything else revolved around spaghetti, burgers & an odd bit of pork.....plus, evening meals are still a source of stress due to most people acting like they've never eaten before, others jumping the queue or just dawdling about whilst trying to make their mind up what to eat !!.
our return next year is assured, we love the place but in future we'll stay for breakfast only, leaving the remaining day free to explore or try eating elsewhere at a time we want to eat as opposed to the regimental evening chaos back at the hotel.
ALL staff are faultless, the rooms, grounds, pools & beach are top quality....we're already looking forward to next year.
