Had a fantastic holiday. Large pool area with good bar food, as well as within the hotel.Drink expensive. Generally relaxing although sometimes there would be local teenage boys quite loud and silly, whilst we were there.

The views are lovely, the rooms are so clean and beds so comfy but the exterior of the hotel and lack of balconies would prevent me from returning.
