This hotel had lots of amenities in a wonderful situation, the staff were friendly, the rooms were clean & good, beds were comfortable, my only complaints were, there were no hairdriers & the bedroom could have done with a mirror. The buffet breakfast was amazing.

We have stayed here many many times and it's always a great place to stay. The hotel is slightly dated and has an older clientele but you are guaranteed a nice quiet stay. The breakfast is good but the meals at all other times are shocking. We spoke to other guests who were on half board basis who were bitterly...

Just back from a great week in this hotel. Great location and spotlessly clean. Staff work hard and almost all cheerful polite courteous and helpful.

We stayed for 17 nights to include Christmas and New Year. The hotel, its location, the waiters and cleaners and reception are all fine. We were on a half board basis which included gala dinners on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. The gala dinners were very good but for the remainder of the holiday the food was bad (two...

We stayed here for one week and were very happy with the room and facilities. Great proximity to the beach. Hotel was clean and spacious.
