We would definitely recommend staying at this hotel. We were there on two separate occassions within a fortnight in a sea view cottage both times.
These cottages are well worth the extra cost as they are far enough away from each other to be very private and relaxing. Inside they do need a little repair in places but not enough to worry about! The beds were lovely and comfortable with duvets and pillows very soft and excellent. Directly outside, the view over the beach and Bay of Bengal were great and you could have your own sunbeds and mattresses to laze on.
The swimming pool and surroundings were excellent with plenty of shade.
The restaurant served fantastic food with an amazing choice, the cost of which we didn't feel was excessive. (e.g fantastic 3 course buffet dinner at weekends for £7-50 inc coffee and eat as much as you like) 24 hour In Room Dining was as excellent with a great choice and very efficient.
The staff were very good and helpful throughout and we used the Business Centre to check in for our return flight (Another reviewer said there wasn't one!)
The only thing I would say is that the outside chairs at the bar are very uncomfortable. Although the inside ones are better. Hotel managers please take note! I would not class it as a 5* but a 41/2* as some very minor repairs are needed. Stay Here, it's good.
