We stayed on a family holiday in April 2013, and on the whole had a great stay. The staff are really friendly and the rooms are well appointed and maintained, with free wi-fi throughout the hotel.
Location is on the west coast where some of the best hotels and restaurants can be found, all within easy (if expensive) taxi ride. The two hotel restaurants are good, although (and this is one of the issues), the kids menu is not available easily in the main restaurant, even though it is available in the other everyday restaurant next to it. This makes the main restaurant less attractive for families.
Outdoors, the hotel is on the beach, which is lovely, and bar service from the hotel is available. Within the hotel the pool looks nice but over the course of our stay it got progressively more cloudy, and it turned out swimming clothes (and skin, temporarily) green. We raised this issue several times but it was not resolved, which was a shame as it marred use of that facility.
Had it not been for these two issues, especially the pool issue, we would have given it 5 stars.
