We visited this hotel on one of Daish's all inclusive coach tours
Good points were :- Clean rooms , good location , nice swimming pool , friendly &hardworking cleaners and waitresses/ waiters
Not so good points :- hotel covered in scaffolding which we weren't told about , roofers start banging at 8am . Unable to open windows in rooms - no ventilation particularly in bathrooms ,
Food was ok if you are used to eating 'meals on wheels ' type of food . no variety , Full English Breakfast consisted of - 1 egg,1 sausage , 1 slice of bacon , 1/4 slice of fried bread , 1 dessertspoon of beans or alternate days 1 plum tomato.
If you wanted a hot drink with your Evening meal you have to leave the room and go to the lounge where you will find it in flasks to help yourself .
1 communal changing/ shower room that was filthy in swimming pool area .
No care given to the needs of the infirm ( one of our party was a blind lady , unsteady on her feet ) she was given a 3rd floor room , and told to leave her wheel chair in reception .
The night time security left a lot to the imagination - we had men outside on the scaffolding (on the 3 rd floor ) at 3 am !!! And was told when I called ' your joking '
Whilst we didn't expect the Ritz for £223 each ( 5 nights ) what we did expect was a lot better than what we got.
This is my honest view of this Hotel and what we experienced . Choose carefully and enjoy your holiday .
