Our 4th time back to hotel. Great service, and room was really nice. Seaview was partially obscured lower roof as we were on 2nd floor, but had a really comfortable stay. Would recommend.

A great one night get away from the kids. Amazing room which was better than expected. We didnt get a sea view but we didnt ask for one so we had no problem with that.The pool was really good and we also enjoyed the hot tub/spa. The food was ok but might have expected better for the price we paid but in fairness to the staff they were very attentive and apologetic when we returned a steak as it was under cooked. All in all it was a great night stay and we hope to come back soon.
