The highlight of this hotel is the pool. It's huge and offers lovely views over the coast - it would be better if they didn't insist on playing piped music by the poolside. There is also a well equipped gym. The rooms are spacious, with a large desk, very big beds, and the bathrooms have glass walls to the bed side (with some curtains if you want more privacy).
The main drawback is the soundproofing - or lack of it. You can hear everything that goes on in the corridor outside your room, and also the noise of your neighbours. The staff come round in the morning knocking on all doors to ask for laundry, which seems unnecessary.
The reception staff are rather slow - both with check in and check out. On my second stay I was put in a smoking room because there was no non-smoking available.
There is a nice terrace for an evening drink, though the wind makes rushing noises and can make it difficult to open and close doors to the terrace. The cafe/bar prices are also very high - beware if you order a G&T! Best bet is a beer, and there seems to be a 2-for-1 offer sometimes.
There's not much in the surrounding area, especially if you want an escape from hotel food. About 5 minutes walk to the right of the hotel is a little local restaurant that does chicken and rice for a minimal price. During the day you can also walk down the hill through the village to the main road and beyond that towards the fishing village.
