Carpet and decorations very old. Hole in wall behind bedside tables. Formica on half wall peeling. Chipped tiles in bathroom. BUT fairly clean. Markets as being beach side but the beach is...

Nice location on the beach our room had a perfect view. Room was clean and comfortable with all you need. Breakfast was more than adequate. Staff very friendly too . Path to beach straight from the hotel. We didn't have time to use the pool but it did look inviting .

A very large resort with an abundance of leisure facilities and wonderful views We don"t play golf but course is obviously pretty good. Rooms may be in need of some reno work ( bathrooms maybe ) but considering the price charged they were up to standard. This is a very well priced resort for families , pool area was great...

An old style Resort but very clean with friendly professional staff. Had the best dinner I've had in a long time must have an excellent chef, breakfast was just as good well cooked with plenty of selection all very reasonably priced. Child friendly but also comfortable for couples.

There is little purpose in the management continuing to say that a refurbishment is planned - the problem is now. We reserved in December last and at recent times we watched the reports on TripAdvisor. So, we rather expected what we got, and we did. Basically what visitors have written is fact. The place is tired. Our shower was disgraceful,...

In its heyday, in another age, this 4* property was possibly worth its stars. Now 2* might be generous. Difficult to understand how the owners have not updated in any evidential way. Having said that it has done the job we needed; a sea facing room which was great if somewhat knackered! The sunrise was perfect. The food offering and...

Don't be fooled by the beautiful pictures you'll be very disappointed as we were. This hotel is in dire need of a refurb.

Opal cove is the exact reason you shouldn't believe photos websites post. We booked thinking we were getting this amazing place - we got a hotel that looked like it was still functioning in the 1970s. My husband likened it to 'the shining'. The staff at check in are touch and go. Sometimes you get a competent one some times...
