My fiance and I had a lovely time at this resort. The accomodation was lovely, if you like having a whole apartment instead of just a room to yourself. The food in the restaurant is very nice, but you have the option of cooking your own meals with the kitchenette, which was an aspect we liked. however, the 24hr shop at the resort is very small and the supermarkets are quite a distance away.
The resort is about a 20minute walk from the coast and a bit longer to the actual beach. This is ok if you like going for walks or don't mind paying for taxis or better yet want to rent a car/bike. The cliff area we ended up walking to was very picturesque and was in fact the area I chose to propose to my fiance!
Back to the resort, the pool area is nice, but can get quite busy so you have to reserve your sunbed early! The gym and spa are free, which is nice.
Overall I rate the accomodation and food highly but the area is a bit far away from everything, so if you don't mind that you'll love this place
