Unfortunately i never got to stay here but i had to iay for it so that does entitle me to review it. My flights were cancelled due to covid and i asked for a refund or voucher to use this hitel at another date next year Unfortunately they decided as this was a non refundable rate this was not possible. After so many calls and complaints from me they said i could change my stay up until October. No use to me.... flights werent operating and now you have to do two weeks isolation when you return . All i wanted was some help during this difficult time, i didnt mind not having a refund, just give me a voucher i can use next year . No, no, no.....so i have had to chuck away 2500 pounds for a family holiday absolute disgrace. Do not give your money to this hotel. I couldnt even get there if i had wanted. MY FLIGHTS WERE CANCELLED. Will never go here agsin and will do my dmenest to let others know what sort of people these are. I understand that money is difficult for them at this time but i was happy with a voucher. It took ages to save for this and now it has just been chucked away.

My sister-in-law and I had an excellent holiday. The situation of the Hotel was great. The Hotel was very clean, and our room was fantastic. There was a wide variety of food at every meal. We never had problems getting a sun bed and the facilities were wonderful for a 3* Hotel. We would definitely recommend this Hotel and look forward to visiting again.
