My wife and I have just returned from this hotel,oct 3 - 10th , one week of sun and rest, we were on the 9th floor and had a good view of the marina and surrounding area. room was good and clean and spacious but the bathroom was a bit cramped, ie loo and bidet behind the door, maybe the bidet was not really nessecary! air con was great. The reception staff were so helpful and kind and considerate that I do not know if n l's review is of the same place, ok maybe they could do with more on duty but come on, food at break fast was good, the selection was amazing and yes the toasters were a bit slow but hey you are on holiday! so chill. quality of the food was good as was the buffet in the evening. Towels were available with a token given when checking in. As Kevin m says about the fridge / mini bar no problems. We were B&B so apart from the one night ate out the rest of the time so many places to eat you are spoilt for choise just beware of the touts they do not really pressure you but can be a bit of a bore after a while. Only down side is the GOLFERS yes they are loud and a pain in the rear but must bring alot of money to the hotel and lets face it the area is a golfers paradise with all the courses, we tried to live and let live but I did have to ask the staff to have a word with one group on our last day, Facilities are great as they have a large outdoor pool a circular pool for children and a outdoor Jacuzzi also they have an indoor pool and Jacuzzi along with a gymnasiun and kids club. They have free access to the internet in the lobby area on a couple of p c's but if you want it in your room it does cost.
