We booked a premier room sea view. on half board basis. The room was only basic. More like a three star. I asked if we had been given the correct room and was told we had. The balcony was tiny, the view large. There was just enough room for two chairs. the bathroom was small. After three nights we asked to be moved and went into the five star Tower sea veiw room. for which we paid an extra 25 euro per night, but well worth it. It was a five star room no complaints. We paid seven euros each for breakfast in the Taste restaurant which was well worth the extra. Next time we go we will book a Tower room sea view on B & B basis. The garden view rooms do not get the sun nor do the spa bedrooms as they are to the rear of the hotel. The dine around arrangements are thus. If you book into the four star you can go to five other restaurants on site BUT you are given a fixed menu to choose from which we did not like. We were made to feel like second class citizens.
There was a lot of road noise. Unfortunatly the main road runs right past the hotel and you cannot escape the noise unless you are in a garden view room. There were also a lot of road works around the hotel which made matters a lot worse. I would ask for a room higher up to minimise the noise. The views are splendid. The four star was a huge dissapointment I really expected a better room. It needs a lot of money spenting on it if it is to attract repeat visitors. The staff were very helpful and did their best. Many times we were in reception and people were trying to change rooms. They also have some rooms with no windows! The breakfast in the restaurant was very noisy, almost like a canteen. The evening meal was much quieter but the food was hit and miss.
