The hotel is easily the best in the area. The staff are very helpful and courteous; particularly Mario the barman. Very good location for bus and train travel. The pool area was lovely - sadly it poured with rain on our last day but all the other days were warm and sunny which enabled us to also use the beach. There was a convention in the hotel on our last two days and the hotel became dominated by business people which also meant we did not enjoy the evening dining experience so much as guests were crowded into the breakfast room instead of the spacious and grand dining room - we were squashed in a corner and both nights were rather rushed. The food however was plentiful and very good.
