We stayed for 12 nights from 28th December through New Year.
We expected luxury but were disappointed as it basically is a 4 star hotel.
As an example, a coke served on the beach was delivered as a basic can of Coke with the lid open. Now as they charge around £4 for one you would at least expect a sturdy plastic glass with a straw, etc. The can basically reminded us that literally 2 minutes walk away at the local shops they are on sale for 40p. We know of course there will be a massive mark-up but it's commercially silly for a hotel to remind you of this. The general food and drink at the hotel was okay but with massively overpriced prices you should expect high quality cuisine.
The buffet breakfast is a mass of pushy people trying to get seated in a room that isn't large enough. It feels like a holiday camp at times.
The pool is in total shade around New Year so be warned, you have to go on beach which we enjoyed but others wont.
And finally the bit that gets missed in the reviews. There is the biggest crane in history to the left of the hotel (that can be seen by everyone on the beach). However, do not ask to be accommodated on the other side as that has a massive construction site right next to hotel.
Anyhow, definitely not 5 star but okay for a short break if get a room discounted.
On the plus side, the hotel staff are very friendly and the hotel is very clean. The staff are being let down by a commercially inept management team.
