I like the extra set of sliding doors in the room which prob made things quieter. Big bathroom, large balcony. Very spacious room. Overall impression was clean. Captain's bar in the lobby was cute and cosy. There is a happy hour early evening it's worthwhile to double check what time that is. The gym downstairs was adequate. There is an indoor pool as well which I didn't try but it looked ok despite being on the small side. Staff fairly friendly. The wifi in the lobby is quite fast, got that free for my package not sure if it is free for everyone. You have access to the beach/coast direct from the hotel. Cross the road from the hotel, not difficult, there are shops and sandwich shops close by. Embers which a lot of my friends go with generally favourable reports. Plus-Sea restaurant about 1 km to the right of the hotel, as you face the hotel, was atmospheric and food was classy and reasonable.
Don't like: the exterior of the hotel is not exactly inspiring but it does get better after you enter. The fabric cushions which hangs in front of the headboard looked a bit dicey. A heart stopping - but not poisonous looking insect on the wall unsettled me for a moment, I let it live because it disappeared quickly.
Summary nice hotel for a family holiday with kids. (Saw a couple of families with happy kids - sweet)
