Having just spent a week at the hotel, I have to say that the staff were extremely friendly, our comfortable bedroom overlooking the swimming pool with sea view, and a good choice of food for breakfast and dinner made our stay enjoyable.
I have only one complaint. In the brochures and online it is made quite clear that shorts are not to be worn at dinner; rightly so. But on our first evening we saw about 90% of men in shorts and every evening thereafter.On asking the restaurant manager why, we were told that during July and August this rule is relaxed as long as shorts are smart! Well, some men were wearing patterned shorts which are only fit for the beach and one man in his 50's wore a vest t-shirt at dinner!!
This would not be surprising in a 3* hotel; that is why we avoid them like the plague, BUT once standards are relaxed in 4* / 5* it puts many people off.
I suggest the management urgently re-consider male dress at dinner, before they lose potential guests of the future.
