A good hotel, but could be better. The bathrooms could do with a refresh. The bar was great and seafood was second to none. Breakfast was nice by the pool overlooking the ocean. Wouldn’t return but glad we checked it out.

Hi, we have booked a superior double room with sea view, I am now seeing that if it’s a superior it’s not renovated and at present your hotel is not getting the best trip advisor reviews regarding some of the rooms! If I am to keep this reservation, will I actually get a sea view and is this room going to be a 5* standard??
Try 6th floor room. Definitely 5* Standard

Hi confused about difference between superior deluxe and premium rooms have read some of rooms are a bit tired and bathrooms not great what’s best to book ?
Thank you for your query. Superior rooms are the base category rooms. Deluxe rooms are all renovated rooms. Premium rooms are larger and some are renovated. Best choice is to book either a Deluxe or a premium room. Trust this information helps.

"We stayed 3rd floor with garden / sea view - quiet - nice"
"Deluxe on higher level"
"Local train passes every 45 minutes behind the hotel.so if you don’t mind 15 second noise , so choose a room at the front of the hotel."
"Avoid rooms on the ground floor"
"sea plus beach view rooms are the best.. "
