This hotel is highly recommended. The rooms are very comfortable, the food fantastic, with so many choices at every meal. The staff are friendly and very efficient. Everything works! Our holiday there was completely stress-free - exactly what we needed!! Well done and thank you to Damian and his team. We will most definitely return!
