This Hotel is a bit out of the way but if you want a quiet relaxing break with no fighting for a lounger and clean rooms and friendly staff you won't go far wrong. Tip, choose All inclusive as your a bit away from the shops. My husband and I came here Sept 16. I didn't realise it was as...

This is an excellent beach destination hotel, though a bit difficult to reach if one were flying in to a nearby airport. If you are driving it is ideal for a beach getaway. Hotel has excellent facilities, spa, beach access, a mini-golf course, a Table-tennis board, bird-watching, and even a large chess board with pieces. There is bar and restaurant...

Visited here with friends during October half term for 4 nights.

It meant that during the day we could sit outside and...

However the quality of the buffet food was not at all what we experienced in other 4stars Iberostar hotels like in Agadir or Mexico. This...
