We paid £310 each for 4 nights,half-board, booked last minute, with Jet2 Holidays. We thought it good value for this money. Good points - fantastic position, very close to both marina and beach (5 minutes); we had a triple room which was spacious and clean with loads of wardrobe space and a quiet air-con unit which meant we could leave it on all night; nice pool area; plenty of choice at breakfast.
Not so good points - we didn't really like the food (apart from breakfasts) so we ate out each night after the first. Other people seemed to manage with it OK. We found it like school dinners, overcooked and stodgy, but I suppose you would get by with it if you were a family on a budget, especially if you are all-inclusive; the usual claiming of the loungers each morning (but the beach is so close, we went there instead and came back at about 4pm when we could get a lounger); no air venting system in bathroom, which meant it got unbearably hot and steamy, especially with 3 having showers one after another. Why no vent?; horrible thin, scratchy towels which didn't dry you properly and were ridiculously small, yuk. (Advise you take your own if you have room).
Overall, because of the excellent position and value price, this made up for other shortcomings.
