Had a lovely week. Rooms, food and service were lovely. Reception staff very helpful. Bed so comfortable. No negatives at all. Just wish it was as pretty as the Touareg and had that beach...then would be perfect for a week in the sun.

The hotel is located next to an amazing beach with beautiful sands, dunes and surf. If you enjoy relaxing round the pool, with your choice of cocktails and an excellent choice of dining, this hotel will not disappoint. The evening entertainment shows were fun with very energetic dancing. The pool has plenty of sun-loungers so no need to be up...
