Great hotel located on the promenade with views out to sea. It is near the casino with a choice of restaurants if you don't want dinner at the hotel. It was a buffet with good choice although we didn't partake.

Pleasant hotel overlooking beach

Pros: Staff and meals.
Cons: Pool could be separated from functional areas.
Location: Ideal location for beach and sea front walks. Need to take care for personal safety in streets nearby away from seafront.
Turned out better than I expected and excellent for a three star hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful, willing to go the extra mile at all times. It was a pleasure to stay. The weekend congress was a great success.
