Nicely located just on the beach ... Clean n tidy place .... Extremely cooperative n courteous staff ... Decent breakfast spread n 2 swimming pools clean n well appointed .... Gym is bit sad - but who goes to a holiday with being weight conscious...rooms esp bathrooms can do better with some or at least a bit more of space

The pool area is absolutely stunning, and the view from the rooms over the beach is fantastic. Apart from those two things, there is nothing special about this place. The rooms are just, you know, average. We are a couple and were given a room with two singles pushed together, still with single sheets on each -they didn't actually pretend... More

My friend and I extended our stay an extra day because we were so happy! The best views, good breakfast, and the most helpful staff! We were upgraded to a better room upon arrival and the one issue we encountered was dealt with immediately. The location is wonderful, close to a lot of great restaurants.
