Beautiful hotel, amazing location and very friendly professional staff. Buffet breakfast very good. Hotel and pool is to a very high standard. If there was anything minor for improvement would have liked a mirror in the bedroom as mirrors only located in bathroom. For getting ready in morning or evening meant had to wait until the other person was finished getting ready first. A change in the fruit in the buffet would be nice, maybe blueberries, strawberries etc

Service at the pool was very slow and intermittent. Apart from that, excellent experience.

The staff are great, very attentive and seem genuinely happy doing their jobs, no false sincerity here. There is mot much I can think of improving, perhaps more power points in accessible places in bedrooms and the beds could be more modern with memory foam mattresses.

Great location. Paid for room with a partial sea view so not cheapest room on offer. It was in the older part of building, very small double bedroom with a single wardrobe ,4 drawers which was enough for a 4 day stay but not enough if you were there for a fortnight.Shower in bath, so,difficult if you are unable to climb into a bath . Breakfast excellent , everything to choose from to eat .
