October 31st 2012.Just returned and felt we just had to tell everyone how great this hotel is.The staff were fantastic and worked tremendously hard,and the majority with a smile.We did not have children with us but it was obvious the children were well entertained in the kids club.The evening entertainment was the usual magician,jugglers,singers, parrot shows etc.But it was there if you wanted it and we watched them all whilst having a drink and it was fine.The food was great with plenty of choice and the bonus of a grill cooking fresh meat every lunch and evening(steak,chicken,sausages,burgers,fish etc)in the morning fried eggs and pancakes.The room was a large one bedroom apartment.We took other reviewers advise and had a sea view and it was truely worth it.Feed the chipmunks who habitat the rocks outside the hotel.We have stayed in 5 star hotels with much nicer interior decoration but did not receive the warmth felt at this hotel.With the turnover of holiday makers it may look a little tired in places but it is still very presentable but if you expect the Hilton dont go.Regarding the weather it was very warm with some cloud cover.It did get quite breezy but we never once wore a jacket or jumper.(Unfortunately the hotel could do nothing about the weather)It is in a good location with a pleasant walk along the sea front to the harbour and beach(15 minutes)If you have to pay for your tranfer we opted to get a taxi which cost 12 euros(£10) Thomas Cook wanted £42 return.Hopefully you will find this review of use we cant wait to go back next year.
