This was a birthday treat. We couldn’t check in until 4.30 so lost the day really. The pool was packed with kids crashing about. Not at all relaxing. Hair dryer packed up. Reception couldn’t find a replacement so had to either go to another room or go out with wet hair.

Disappointingly check in is not until 4pm…so bear this in mind if only staying one night, as you are also unable to use the facilities until this time. Fab beach front location. Brilliant hot spa jacuzzi pool but could do with a re-tile and deep clean (as per most of the hotel) Lovely decorated rooms with a free standing bathtub but there was a wet patch and stain when we entered the room so again, cleanliness is questionable. Free minibar but told we couldn't order room service as we pre paid for the room, so we had to go downstairs and order it from the bar! Again, disappointed. When it arrived, it was lukewarm and not great. The cheesecake was also warm and sloppy with almost no biscuit base. It was so off putting that we skipped the pre paid breakfast the next morning. I’d rate the hotel as a strong 3.5 stars, as it needs to modernise its processes to be more convenient, definitely needs a deep clean and touch up and better food standards.

Very impressive, superb location, amazing view of the sea. Especially impressive was Lorna(?) on reception; professional, friendly, informative and welcoming. Less impressive was the pool, it was rather tired and shabby with a grubby, badly maintained, poorly ventilated changing room. I was not tempted to return for a second swim...

Lovely hotel, thin walls?
Stayed for a wedding but arrived on the day so couldn’t check in until midnight which was fine and easy enough. Lovely hotel, room was great, clean, comfy bed, nice view. Only downside was we could really hear the room next door, phone alarm going off for ages and general moving around - thin walls?! Other than that, it was great.
