The hotel staff are lovely but that was its only real saving grace. The first room we stayed in, 204, was cold, dirty and had not been serviced properly, it had a 'what to do in Dec' sheet in the Information folder! It was also very, very noisy and I was kept awake until 4.00 am. The next day we were moved and the room was better, it had toiletries, glasses and what you would expect although very basic refreshments, only tea and coffee, no decaf or biscuits. We were part of a larger family party so ate in the hotel the first night. The sea bass was average so would not recommend. my husband had a burger which he enjoyed although another person did not. My biggest concern was breakfast. As I am allergic to eggs I have to be very careful. The 'chef' used the same utensils to dish everything up, meat, eggs, tomatoes. I said something on the first day and again on the second day. Cross contamination is hugely dangerous and I spoke to the manager who was going to have a word. Others might like to check this as if I lived in Ireland I would go back to see it had been done. My husband, who eats everything said it was only just okay. Orange squash was only available to us on the Sunday but juice was there on Monday, generally value brand beans, and underripe tomatoes, pretty rank with only cocktail sausages on the Monday. The leisure centre was okay and enjoyed my swim.
