The location was great, and the rooms were perfectly fine (although yes we had a leaking shower - it worked fine you just couldn't leave anything on the floor otherwise it could have got wet) Our door stopped working one night so we went down to reception and they changed the batteries, then it stopped working again - so we...

We had bed and breakfast. The breakfast was lovely with a good choice. The pool was very quiet, so maybe too quiet for a family holiday. The bar had sky sports perfect for the men. The rooms in the front with a sea view were just stunning. The rooms were spotlessly cleaned everyday. The private beach was pebbly but secluded...

This is the second time we've stayed at this hotel - something we just don't usually do.

Fabulous location, short walk from the town, but away from night life noise. Small private beach. Spotlessly clean rooms, excellent room service daily. Fantastic cuisine. Beautiful views across the bay from the front windows. Friendly, helpful staff, nothing is too much trouble for them.

When booked through Thomas Cook we were allocated a "garden view" and was so glad I contacted the hotel direct for an upgrade to a sea view for an exttra 30€ per night. The room had a balcony overlooking the sea with sun in the morning and cooler in the evening - perfect. Cleanliness was 5 star and the staff...

Like many of the other reviews state the hotel is nice, very clean with polite staff. The hotel is small so can accept that sunbeds etc will be a problem but the beach is not bad and benefits from the sea breeze, we always managed to get a space. We reported broken beds and this was dealt with promptly. The...
