The easiness of being able to casually stroll over to the bustling little port or go the other way along the sea wall made this hotel the ideal spot for us as we like walking around and getting to know the area we are staying in. Staff are the best of the best with smiles and helpful information should you need it. Everything is done well in this hotel and your business felt appreciated and we certainly did not just feel like a number, as we have done in other hotels. The rooms and public areas are spotless and the food is as good as a 5 star hotel. Good swimming pool with plenty of sun beds and sunshades. Do not have anything negative to say and we are going to look at returning for a break next March.

We stayed here for 10 days and was welcomed with a drink of our choice which was a nice touch. We were allocated a ground floor room which wasnt ideal as it faced onto the busy street, we were moved after 2 days to the 3rd floor, much more private. The restaurant was very busy and we found it very noisy with the clattering of tables being cleared and was quite warm. The food was ok, a good selection but found it quite bland, we went out a couple of evenings so we could eat something spicy/tasty but saying that overall it was quite good. There is a dress code (no shorts in evening) which is not enforced, would be nice if people could make more of an effort sometimes. Fridge in the room was brilliant, as was the service and the staff couldnt be more helpful. Always found a sunbed and the pool was clean and not too crowded. Would come back as great location and overall had a brilliant holiday.

On arriving we received a glass of fizzy wine and water while getting room keys. We asked if we could move to a room on a higher floor which they did for us within 2 hours. Brilliant extra of cold drinks including beer in the fridge in the room. Rooms were of a great size and had large balconies.
We were BandB so can only comment on that but breakfast was brilliant. Great range of choice, everything you could want.
Location was excellent, right next to beach and minutes walk to harbour which was lovely to stroll around in the evening.
Never a problem to get loungers.
Would definitely return.
Only tip, get taxi from airport as only about 20 pound and bus transfer can take much longer.

Room Tip: Overlooking pool.

The hotel location is brilliant, right by the marina and literally yards to the nearest beach or a 5 minute walk to the next. There is a taxi rank opposite and the bus route is at the top of the steep hill behind.

Breakfast was fairly good in the morning, usual hot buffet and continental buffet but quite a lot of choice. The evening meal was much better though and was at least as good as any other buffet we have had in the past few years and on a few nights it was excellent. There was always a wide selection so should suit every taste.

The rooms were fairly spacious and we had no problem with the air con, the restaurant did get a bit too warm though at times and some air con in there would certainly be welcome. The pool area is nice and big and was never too crowded to get 3 or 4 sunbeds around mid afternoon, the floor did get a bit dirty during the day though. The bar area was also very nice but the singers we saw were not the best, which may have been part of the reason why the bar was so quiet after dinner.

The staff were also very helpful with advice on getting around the resort and venturing out, they were also able to change our evening meal slot and do early breakfast when we needed to.

We would happily go back, the location and food are excellent and the staff are very helpful and we would certainly recommend it.

We appreciate your positive review and are happy that you have spent a good time at our hotel.
In reference to your comment about the aircon in the restaurant, we do have aircon in that área. Possibly its effectivity descends just a Little bit due to the open doors to the terrace and the entrance, but the difference is still very big compared to the outside temperature.

We look forward to your next visit.

We are just back from spending a week at this smashing hotel. Lovely staff, great food and a nice location.. On reading previous guests reviews we also e-mailed the hotel and asked for a
higher floor pool view which we were given (room 339) and were glad we did. We like to sit on our veranda in the morning after breakfast and in the late afternoon before dinner . However if you also like to sit on your veranda then, if requesting a pool view, I would ask for a higher floor as the sunbeds are so placed that some of them are right next to your veranda- thus no privacy when sitting and chatting- also a few of them are facing the back of the pool bar and poolbar seating area-again no privacy.
Again we had a wonderful time at this hotel and the fridge in the room was an extra bonus, plus the complimentary beer, soft drinks and water were a nice thought. (2 of each)

Smashing hotel and first class staff.
Also some of the rooms which face the front and side of the hotel are blocked by large trees and lots of bushes which you may not want, so again ask for a higher floor. (Hotel is not high rise-3 floors at pool side)

Room Tip: Higher floor if you like to sit on your veranda.

Very respectable family/couples type hotel in great position. Was busy but not over crowded and had a good atmosphere. We felt that the staff were better than average and they put a lot of attention into their work whether that was at reception or in the dining room keeping everyone happy with the buffet running perfectly! We thought the food was better than we´ve had in other hotels where they´ve offered half board, and the breakfast was so vast we usually made do with a very light lunch so we could enjoy the evening meal. Nice clean rooms and very quiet and peaceful to sleep in too. The location is ideal for a beach holiday with enough small shops and bars and so on to keep you occupied around the hotel.

We always go half board or all-inclusive, so have a fair bit of experience in judging quality compared to price and you can be assured that you are getting a good deal at this hotel. Delighted with the buffet and extensive food on offer and nice big open dining room where you can enjoy your meals at your leisure. The staff manage the whole thing with ease and expertise and make you feel very welcome. The room we were given was a good size and had all the usual things you expect to find, plus a small fridge with cans of pop, water and a couple of beers. The cleaning ladies came in every morning and made up the room and left fresh towels. The location is great and the resort in general is clean and easy to get around as it is not too big.
