A one night stay as a stop over before driving back to the UK and from reading the previous reviews I was concerned, but the sat nav directions were correct and we arrived with no problems.

We are staying in the hotel at present and we are disappointed to the point of tears. We booked after seeing the pictures on their website. On arrival we got a terrible green room, with a mouldy bathroom and a small terrace that overlooks the entrance roof and the road on the side. After speaking to reception, they gave us...

First off, this is not a 4 star hotel. Despite what their website says. And the usual booking sites say, this is no 4* hotel. They told me that they lost that status is May and are "working towards" regaining it. Let´s leave aside the economy with the truth on their website shall we? And say instead that, if they...

I`ve spent here 2 weeks with my husband and daughter (3 years). We liked practically everything - interior, the level of the comfort, servise, landscape. Two outdoor swimming pools (one small for children and one 30/15, my daughter prefered big one) and one indoor (it was opened when it was raining or strong wind), not big but confortable enough. Staff...

My cousin and I booked this hotel for a last minute holiday..... It is tucked down a side road and hard to find at first (but that is because the transfer company were rubbish - not the place!).

The Hotel is undergoing some extensions, and is still approached by a dirt road (12th May 2008) The pool area and pool bar are as good as you will find anywhere, not that the pool bar is always open, the pool is a swimmers pool, straight forward about 30 yards by 15 yards.
