Had a week staying at this hotel. It was excellent. We asked for sunset side so you get sun from late afternoon into evening - opposite side is morning. A short walk to beach, restaurants and marina.

The hotel is situated one block away from the marina and a short walk from the village. I stayed there with a golfing group which the hotel looked after very well as it lays on transport to all the local courses. The breakfast was hot (from 7am) and cold buffet style with the eggs (not boiled) and pancakes freshly cooked....

I am a returning customer to this hotel, and each visit has been for a golf tour. This hotel is absolutely perfect for this purpose, it is clean, near to the marina, and reasonably inexpensive. The check in process does seem a bit slow and inefficient, but the staff are none the less obliging. Breakfast is ok, but full English...

2nd visit to this hotel, stayed on a BnB basis and found food fine, apart from coffee which minged bad. The laid back atmosphere was ruined by rowdy drunken golfers who considered obscene and sexually explicit language approriate for the foyer of a 4 star hotel. Had my maiden aunt travelled with me she'd have been horrified, thankfully she died...
