The main feature is the view and location near (not on) the beach. The beach is reached via a walkway over the road. The main feeling that I got from the hotel was that it was trying to be something it is not, and that is a high class hotel, the restaurant is in the foyer and doesn't afford much privacy, it's fine for breakfast but doesn't lend itself to a relaxed dining experience. The side entrance from the car park brings you right through the 'restaurant' given the relatively pricey menu wasn't value for money. The rooms are a bit tired, the balcony non existent, you can't sit out on it. The car parking is pricey and makes the hotel more pricey than it should be. The lifts are really slow would not be a problem if you could use the stairwell, which you can't as they are only fire exits! Would not use this hotel again, nor would I recommend it.
