This resort is directly on the beach so good location. However, the beach front from the resort is not great. The sea had empty beer bottles and fag butts in it because of the party goers staying there.
We walked further down the beach every day where is was cleaner and the sea was beautiful.
This is a party hotel so don't stay here unless you want to be up all night. The music is a bit monotonous - very very loud in the early hours.
We had a superior room but there was nothing superior about it. The smell of drains in the bathroom was disgusting and the room was tiny. I have stayed in bigger Travelodge rooms.
The reception staff were rude and unhelpful but the restaurant staff were nice.
The photos on the Arb Bar website are not a true reflection.
