We had room 161 which quiet although the balcony was facing the children's playground and pool area. The staff was friendly and the rooms clean so nothing to complain about. Best was the location near the sand dunes and the beach. And if you wanted, you also had the possibility to use the hotel transportation to the beach and back.

The hotel was in a lovely location. Next to the sandunes. Beach was really only a walk away. The pools were great with absolutely brilliant gardens and surroundings although the sun beds were sort of cramped together. We found it best to stay near the stage so that you could move the beds around for more room, less noise. It...
