Not perfect but very very close.
Food excellent, not world class but well presented, great taste and good choice.
Staff are all really lovely and hotel facilities are excellent.
Rooms are alittle 'old hat' but nice enough and perfect as you wont be in the room much. Our 3rd bed for our 12yr old son was alittle small, so we asked for a bigger bed and Thomson moved us to a bigger room with a sea view (cant be bad can it !)
Sun and wind. The wind makes this the most pleasant climate we have stayed in (not as fierce as Egypt,Turkey,Cyprus etc etc). We all loved it.
Sea. Great fun with big waves and crashing surf - teens will love it buy non swimmers would be scared.
Overall we loved our 2weeks here. No hesitation in recommending and we would love to go back ourselves.
