Went here for a family mini break in mid February. Although the furniture in the reception area could be updated as it looks rather worn, the hotel itself is very clean and eye pleasing. The rooms were fabulous and a good size, my boys loved the bunk beds!
The spa was fab, and the gym equipment was also ideal (along with sauna, steam room and pool!). Very clean and well decorated.
The food was fantastic, best food we've had at any hotel. I'm a really fussy eater particularly when it comes to meat, however, St Raphael offered a great selection of quality meat ranging from duck, gammon, salmon (and other fish), beef, chicken....the list continues. It was also good to see that the food choice also included healthy options rather than simply deep fried or covered in oil, which most hotels offer. The themed nights were a great chance to sample a variety of meals.
The only disappointment for us was the Captains Bar. Although the drinks selection was very good, it was unpleasant for us to have to sit and drink in the reception area as children under 12 years are not allowed in the Bar area. There was no other location for us to sit other than outside in the windy and cold weather.
The kids club is fantastic. At first i was very cautious about letting my boys go but they had a great time doing different activities and burning off energy. It was good to see how they like the kids entertainer Sergi, and how well he interacted with them. It was a shame it was closed on Sunday as they really wanted to go back.
The staff were also curtious and made an effort to speak with us on numerous occasions and made a fuss of our boys.
Loved this break and will be heading back very soon :)
