Me and my partner wanted a few days away for the bank holiday weekend, we booked this through On the beach and once we booked it we were nervous, just because we have always gone through travel agencies.
When we got to the hotel everything looked nice and I was impressed with the pool area as its right outside reception. We were upgraded to another room because ours wasn't ready (which made me nervous) but when we got to our room we were really impressed with the room. It was spacious, well decorated, clean, it had a huge double bed, dressing table, a big wardrobe with a safe in it, a big plasma TV and we had a decent size balcony that overlooked the front of the hotel and there was also a mini fridge. The bathroom was very big too and had a shower as well as a large sink with a decent size mirror, the hotel had provided two fresh towels daily and the room would thoroughly cleaned everyday. (They also provide hairdryer in the room)
We had breakfast included in our package and again we were really impressed with the variety of food that was displayed, there was something for everybody (the scrambled eggs were the best) The staff were fantastic, very helpful and welcoming.
Around the hotel there is plenty to do, the beach is not even a five minute walk and we both spent a lot of time there as the beach was clean and well looked after, it wasn't too busy either (I can imagine in June-August it will be packed) the sea was very clear and the scenery around us was beautiful. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to eat and drink at too, we would highly recommend the restaurants Beefeater and Aroma, we had great meals from there.
There is plenty to do in the local area too, we just didn't have enough time however we did manage to go to Bioparc zoo, which was a 10 minute walk from the hotel and again we would recommend going there as it is really good and there are some beautiful animals. The local town is also a five minute walk away from the hotel and there are plenty of shops and supermarkets as well as their local train station.
Overall we were REALLY impressed with the holiday and will be going back next year for longer this time.
