When expectations are managed before hand, this place rocks!
Looking at the images available before booking gave me a clue about some of the less aesthetic aspects of the building and rooms; they are however, still fantastic value for money!
I stayed one night as a single traveller attending a Saturday evening celebration.
On arrival, following the 20 minute ride from airport for which 'free' transport is provided both ways (!) - the welcome was warm and appeared genuinely sincere with light, friendly chat - a lovely welcome!
The interior of the reception, bars, function rooms and facilities in general was of a high standard; modern and pleasing. (Loved the huge mirror behind the bar which reflects the sea and beach!)
The room I chose was an 'executive' suite, sea-facing and on the first floor. Access was via a lift. The room is best described as a little 'tired', but I just didn't care! The location, service and overall experience of fantastic food, ambience, service, location and incredible value for money - more than offset any aesthetic considerations.
In any event, all facilities I noticed were clean, even if a few small seals in bathrooms, etc, will benefit from replacement.
I cannot thank the staff enough for their attention and welcome.
I will be returning, next time as a 'base' for a family vacation to Ireland.
