At first glance this hotel looks like a swish boutique hotel - a light and spacious lobby with white sofas. Look a little closer though and the standard of cleaning wasn't really up to scratch - a sharp eyed housekeeper is required here.
There is a lovely open fire in the lounge area but the staff need some training on how to light it as they suceeded only in generating a lot of smoke on two occasions!
As a previous poster observed, there appeared to be some renovation work going on, particularly near the indoor pool area but maybe this is par for the course in November.
The beach was none too clean, but then we encountered quite a lot of dirty beaches on both sides of the island during a seven week tour. Again, perhaps nobody bothers cleaning the beaches in winter as very few tourists use them during this period.
There was a 'kids room' downstairs near the inddor pool but some of the toys had seen better days.
On the plus side the food at breakfast time was varied and of a high standard. It was also very competitively priced in November (booked 'hotel only' through Thomson website).
Would I return again? Probably not, as there are plenty of alternatives.
