Nice beachfront hotel

This was a nice hotel. We paid for a superior room so the room was large and spacious with a large comfortable bed and a balcony overlooking the beach. It was very windy so a little noisy through the sliding doors. The breakfast had plenty of choice although we stayed in the hotel over new year so it was extremely busy especially at breakfast. My main complaint about the hotel is the pool. It gets no sunlight/sunshine at all during the day so you must go to the beach and pay an expensive amount to hire a sunbed. The staff were helpful and friendly and overall I would recommend this hotel.
