A truly great holiday experience. A very comfortable room with a balcony and sea view (not really restricted as claimed) and wonderful buffet meals. We were there for an early spring break at the end of February and the weather was very pleasantly warm and sunny.
The refurbishment of the public areas is apparently scheduled for the end of the year, but they were very good anyway with the slight shabbiness adding a slight period atmosphere.
The evening entertainment was not always to our taste but was clearly enjoyed by most of the other guests. It is very much aimed at the older generation. The extensive lounge areas made it easy to find a place that was just the right distance from the music.
The staff were excellent throughout and it was certainly one of our best holiday experiences. We booked it as part of a Thomson package which was very good value, even though the departure from Gatwick meant we had to be there in the middle of the night! Highly recommended.
