Visited with our two grandchildren aged 10 and 14. Found that any small problems were dealt with very quickly and to our satisfaction. Had no major problems.
Staff found to be friendly and efficient.
Be advised that parking is a problem especially when events taking place at the hotel and would advise that if possible use excellent bus service nearby.
Agree with other reviewers that some of the carpets in communal areas are threadbare in places and hotel could do with coat of paint in places.
Room was comfortable and sheets were changed at least twice in 9 day stay, towels changed more frequently. 10 year olds feet tended to get a bit dirty after she had been dancing around room barefoot.
Had requested room with sea view and was more than happy with it.
Outdoor and inside pools used frequently and were good
Breakfast was outstanding probably best we have had in a hotel over last 10 years. Dinner tasted good but overpriced so we tended to eat out.
Three weddings held there during our stay but had no problems with noise.
Beach only few minutes walk away through gardens but be warned it is steep on way back.
