This is a truly fantastic hotel. The staff were excellent and really friendly from the minute we arrived until the minute we left, the decor in the rooms was gorgeous, the balconies overlooking the sea are a really nice touch, it's so nice to step out in the morning and smell the fresh sea air. Loads of nice little touches in the room which really made the holiday. Rooms were spotlessly clean as well.
The spa is fantastic, well worth the money, and the treatments are very professional and relaxing. I'm really not a spa person but I loved it here, especially the 'relaxation room' where you wait for your treatments with complimentary juice, coffee, herbal teas, fruit etc. Again little touches make the difference. A little tip - ring up and book your treatments in advance, I wanted one which was unfortunately unavailable when I asked in the morning. Had I booked it a couple of days before I would have been alright.
The hydrotherapy pool, steam room and sauna are open to all guests for unlimited use and they are all fantastic - the hydrotherapy pool uses heated and treated sea water and it's easily the most relaxing pool I've ever been in!
We only dined in the Dunes bar but the food was delicious and the staff were friendly even though it was busy, service was a tad slow but the staff were extremely apologetic and the atmosphere was nice. Nice to sit outside as well and eat with a view of the Atlantic. Breakfast in the Gulfstream restaurant was gorgeous, lots of choice and really delicious food, good mix of hot and cold.
Overall this hotel really does have a "resort" feel about it - it is in a remote location, and we didn't have a car, but the hotel was so nice we were content to spend all our time there! The location astride two gorgeous blue flag beaches is perhaps one of the hotel's most stunning features and it makes it such an ideal place for a 'get away' break.
All in all I really can't recommend this hotel enough, we can't wait to go back. It far exceeded both of our expectations and we've been recommending it to all our friends!
