We stayed for 12 nights commencing 2 May. The previous 4 reviews are generally very fair and I would generally agree with them. As one review mentioned there are 3 blocks in this hotel and the rear 2 blocks and the pool/pool bar and tv lounge can only be reached by a fight of 15 fairly steep steps, so beware if you have walking difficulties or toddlers in buggies. I am not a fussy eater but the food was mixed both excellent and at times indifferent, the fish was generally disappointing. similarly the evening entertainment , which starts at 10pm was mixed with too many silly movie quizzes and karaoke.
Superb location (the min selling point) opposite the beach close to shops and buses.
Very friendly hard working staff.
Spacious bedrooms, many with balcony and sea view.
Very generous measures of spirits not watered down but the cocktails come pre prepared in a box and are not freshly mixed.
Snacks, tea, coffee, drinks crisps, popcorn ,ice cream and delicious chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon at the pool bar.
Superb value for the price that we paid.
Many couples return every May and Sept/Oct.
15 steps up to pool bar and 2 rear blocks.
Apparently, there may not be any kids entertainment this year which disappointed a few couples during our stay. In previous years the hotel has had great kids entertainers.
Pool area is very small and too many sunbed jammed in makes it difficult to move, probably hard to get a sun bed in high season
No hair driers or tv in the bedrooms.
The furniture in the lounge is badly worn and uncomfortable to sit on and is apparently going to be replaced.
WiFi costs €5 per day or €20 per week and if you want high speed access the cost is 50% more. Note McDonalds across the road has free Wifi.
