This hotel is really value for money and situated on the beach. Rooms are huge and have a bar and lounge area. They also offer...

The decorations is stunning right throug the place, it is a stunning venue also and the same regarding the gardens. The service was not good at all and i did not enjoy my food either. But still love the setting. The smoking area was dissapointing!

I reviewed this hotel last year and I am pleased to say that nothing has changed. It is still a well-run, clean and friendly, family orientated hotel. The food at the buffet is ample and delicious, the pool area is relaxing and shady, and the tidal pool just outside the hotel is well looked after. All rooms have magnificent sea...

Service was excellent. My room was clean, airy and comfortable. It located to most amenities. The food and service was the best. They only need to upgrade to a little more modern room as the door still uses keys instead of the card system.

My husband and I recently booked a 5 day stay at this old fashioned, charming hotel. We had booked the dinner, bed and breakfast option and due to the price, we're not expecting much. The food was healthy, well cooked and a large variety of home cooking at its best. We had frequented this hotel in many occasions for lunch,...

Stayed for one night and enjoyed the 'feel' of a traditional old style hotel. Lovely sea view, clean rooms, good food and friendly staff. An ideal venue for parents with young families - close to the beach, plenty open space and jungle gym. Good value for money. Nothing fancy but all that is needed.

This hotel has great views, and the buffet food is generous and tasty. If we could, we would have stayed longer. Our kids loved it here. There is a nice beach and tidal pools. All the stairs are good exercise! The hotel is not 5*, so if that is what you want, look elsewhere. This is a fun place where...
