This hotel has large double rooms, with a comfortable settee looking out of the window. There was good lighting so it was possible to read in the room. The hotel is situated on a cliff about a mile from the town making it very quiet. There was entertainment in the bar until 11.00 4 nights. The one downside was the food( except for 2 occasions when all the food had plastic covers over it) the food was only warm not hot. The hotel was clean. the staff friendly and helpful. When we were there a lot of the guests were out most of the day on coach trips, so there was plenty of room by the pool; but when they returned at 4.30 there was a lack of sunbeds, this could be a problem in high season. I will happily return to this hotel.
