It's hard to review, because location wise it is perfect, on the beach & walking distance to everything you need. The staff were friendly & welcoming, the hotel very clean & impressive. Our first impression of our room was 'wow' - but this quickly evaporated when we attempted to go to sleep. Our room (002) is next to a cupboard, which appears to be where the cleaning equipment is held, which seemed to be accessed from 5am onwards. The cupboard felt like it was in our room it was that noisy with staff going in & out of it. Then the pigeons started outside our room, and never stopped. The room is also next to the staircase that people run up & down constantly, plus the staff seemed to stand outside our room chatting, before starting hoovering. Eventually we fell back to sleep before being terrified awake by a huge industrial sounding roar from beneath our room, which lasted over an hour. We gave up on sleep to have a shower, but our bathroom was a wet room, so once hubby had showered our whole bathroom was drenched, including the entire floor & toilet. If we had been in a different room our experience could have been so different.
