I stay in a wide variety of hotels for business and pleasure on a regular basis so I can offer comparative view. I have to say this is the best hotel pound for pound I have ever stayed in. It may not be a 5 star all inclusive resort but it punches far far above its weight.
If all hotels benchmarked against this one, they would raise the level significantly. Have seen a few people moaning on here about sunbeds, nothing better to do in my opinion. There probably isn't enough for the whole hotel, but most normal people will venture further than just the hotel during their stay. So the hotel probably account for the excursion and beach people so I guess some days this might be an issue if no one decides to go anywhere. I did not have one issue. If you go don't forget to use the roof terraces and pool, sun last longer into the evening up there as well.
The bar and food is excellent, good value and service excellent, from the minute we arrived at 1am to the minute we left absolutely nothing was too much trouble.
The only downside to this hotel is probably the nearby resort, typical Brit abroad stuff in places and sometimes it's just embarrassing. Luckily I didn't see any evidence in this hotel, probably better to go out of hotel and turn right.
