Not our usual holiday (stopping in a hotel) we like to do our own thing & not be tied to 'times' ....... However we must say this was the most chilled out holiday we have had for a long time! The staff were great! Always there & ready to help but not 'in your face' just as we like. The...

The rooms are large and clean, unfortunately, partly are also a little old: especially in the bathroom. Unfortunately, we discovered the wood door of the room can be easily opened without the key. The meals...

The staff were all very attentive and could not do more, the room was clean and simple with a sea view from the patio. The food...

I've stayed in this hotel for a week at the beginning of September. I've arrived very late in the night, but a really nice night porter helped out to set me in in no time. Because I had a full board stay, I was also expected with a beautiful tray of cold snacks, very varied and quite delicious. Next day...
