We stayed here for a week (adult + 17yr and 14 yr). We stayed on half board and found plenty of choice at both breakfast and dinner. All is buffet style, and while some things suffer a little from not being freshly cooked, trays were constantly replenished and the dining room was very efficiently run. There was some hotel entertainment,...

A good hotel with all the facilities you would require - good pool, pleasant and helpful staff, bar, great breakfast, room fridge. The main issue was the poor acoustics in the hotel and the echo of every door closing, shower running and toilet flushing resonating - pretty annoying when the hotel was packed with golfers and SAGA holiday guests who...
