We stayed two nights on a TreatMe deal which was great value to start with. The beachfront wing is three storied and we were on the middle level. The view was gorgeous and the sound of the sea very conducive to a good sleep. The rooms are only one deep so all rooms have sea views and no neighbors across hall, just beside you. It was a peaceful hotel despite tour groups staying both nights which can be noisy with early departures. I would not want to stay on the ground floor however, no views there. On our second night it was a bit sad when a huge chemical truck and trailer pulled up and blocked the sea view of both the restaurant and half the rooms. There is a road between the hotel and sea.... We had dinner in our first night and I was impressed. Great fish meal. We had a breakfast which was not so good as it was buffet only and as it was about 9am it was not that fresh or hot. Friendly staff at reception and restaurant, nice touches with lighting dimmers, heated bathroom tiles and spa bath made this a nice place to stay. Would have liked softer loo paper and fluffy robes but being fussy now. The biggest drawback according to partner was that the sleeping wing is separate from reception, bar, dining etc. It rained while we were there so going between restaurant and room was a bit of an outdoor maze. Access to building was by room key so one can't go back to the room independently and the other come back later as they are locked out. Just tricky if you want to relax and leave your mobiles off.
I would love to go back but would not want ground floor and want the super king bed again.
