Excellent location, within easy reach of main facilities/town. Found restaurants/bars in town offered much better value than those around the marina where we had possibly the worst quality (most expensive) meal of our holiday! But it is lovely to walk around of an evening.
Check in & check out took an absolute age. Myself and my daughter waited in the main lounge bar area whilst my friend checked us in, and we were quite disturbed to see a VERY obviously drunk couple of men sat in the bar area (could barely hold their heads up!!) still getting served yet more alcohol by the bar-man, then one of the men was sick all over himself and the floor!! Quite disgusting!! They left the bar and the staff didnt even bother to clean it up off the floor! Really awful start to our holiday and not what we would expect to see in a 4 star hotel in the mid-afternoon! Luckily that was the only poor experience of our stay.
The room was an excellent size with a separate lounge area and very clean. Also a lovely large balcony which enabled us to sit out of an evening enjoying a glass of wine overlooking the sea.
The area felt safe at night and we all enjoyed many a midnight stroll along the beach.
If you are a beach lover you couldn't wish for a better location it is literally on your doorstep. Beach was clean, however the sea was pretty grim on occasions, I even witnessed female sanitary products (amongst other grotesque items) floating by.
Overall a pleasant place to stay (better if you have a sea-view). Good internet access when we were there too.
