I stayed here for four nights. The room was plenty big for the three of us (twin beds for myself and my mum plus a camp bed for my niece), and was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was busy, but we never had to wait too long to be seated. The breakfast buffet was varied and plentiful, though I'm not a fan of coffee from automatic dispensing machines, which many hotels now seem to favour. The bar served excellent cocktails, but lacked atmosphere in the evenings. I guess its great location - just a short walk to the marina and the beach - is a disadvantage in this respect, as there are so many other bars and restaurants right on its doorstep. There was some noise from local bars/clubs at night. The one area I didn't like so much was the outdoor pool. It was very cramped and crowded. It would be nice to have a bit more room to move around the pool deck. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
