Stayed at this hotel as a family and have to say it was relaxing, pleasant and above all a very good experience.
The hotel is well located in th heart of the town, next to the promenade, restaurants, shops and the ocean! The restaurant caters well with a very wide ranging menu - buffet style. Presentation is good and quality of food is good. The only negative is that the presentation can look tired quickly as the masses gather their food and take their pickings. Staff try to pretty it up when they see the unsightly array. The swimming pools are a good size and you don't need to worry about the early morning towel on the bd brigade. There are plenty of seats/loungers and the clientele is mature.
The gym and sauna are small and unisex. Not such an issue, unless you are offended with large pot bellied men sitting in the sauna undraped.
The wifi system is poor with access only available at the reception area. Not available in the rooms.
The entertainment is interesting. None of them would get past the first round in the X factor! Having said all that the staff and management are exemplary. They take pride in the service they provide and offer genuine caring service. They make the stay very enjoyable.
