    Long weekend

    Nice hotel but rather 4* then 5. Hotel has spa but you need to pay €10pp per day if you want to use sauna or jacuzzi. If you want to use pool you need to buy a cup for €5. Breakfast is very good but dinner is a let down, specifically if you pay full price €25 pp without any drinks. Half board value for money was not too bad. Location is good with spacious rooms but they lack some stuff such as wine glasses.

    Gardens and pool were lovely. Property advrtised as “on the edge of the old town whereas it was not walkable and a ten minute drive.Food at hotel nothing special and few restaurants in locality so as last shuttle bus was just after 5pm taxis were required to and from town to eat in evening Breakfast ok but every morning what should have been hot food eg bacon sausage egg was at best lukewarm.This complaint has been made by other reviewers and despite the hotels response that they would remedy this they clearly haven’t On one occasion a tray of fried eggs freshly brought from kitchen were cold! Chambermaids often didn’t come until late afternoon and were slapdash compared to other five star hotels These criticisms are a pity because the hotel would be lovely apart from these
