We stayed for 3 nights in a deluxe studio (room 104) which was a nice room with views across the pool to the sea. It was a good size room with a comfortable bed and was relatively quiet even though there was a fairly busy road between the hotel and the sea. Breakfast was included in the resort's small restaurant which had a buffet for cereals, fruit etc. and a cooked breakfast which was freshly prepared. This was fine except one morning our order got lost and despite repeated reminders it was 40 minutes before our cooked breakfast appeared even though there were only 6 other diners at the time. We also ate supper in the restaurant on one occasion and had a very nice meal.
What was disappointing about our stay was we were expecting more from what is sold as a 'an award-winning, exclusive, 5 star resort'. There was no lounge and only a very small bar in the restaurant. Also, apart from the duty receptionist (who was located in an office in the underground car park), the housekeeper and those in the restaurant we didn't see any other staff.
Basically, this is smart motel, with nice rooms, spa and a good restaurant.
