I was worried about the reviews I'd read before our stay but upon arriving I was wondering what all the complaints were about. We really enjoyed our stay.
We found our room (Number 50 - 1 bedroom Studio) to be clean, airy big enough for the 2 of us. We didn't cook so I can't comment on the kitchen but it seemed very well equipped with a full sized fridge.
The staff throughout the hotel we found to be very helpful & attended to all our needs. We enjoyed hanging by the pool in the heat & using the pool bar facilities. one complaint I do have is that I wish the pool was heated. It was a bit chilly & I feel that the pool bar could be a happening place if the temperature in the pool was a tad warmer - we enjoyed the pool nonetheless.
We ate at the breakfast buffet everyday, it is one of the better free continental breakfasts I've had of late, consisting of bread, muffins, ham, cheese, sandwich press, pancake maker, muesli, yoghurt, fruit & a range of coffee & tea. I couldn't fault it & it set us up well for the day.
We were not worried about it being non-serviced as we read the fine print before paying and we were aware of this. We generally keep our room tidy & don't really like house-keeping around our things, so no problem there.
There is also a spa, gym, tennis courts and beach towels are free of charge & are changed whenever you need new ones.
For the reasonable price we were really happy with our stay & wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
