Rooms are huge and so clean and modern. Lovely toiletries, fridge, free safe, bathrooms imaculate, tea and coffee facilities, Netflix and big tv. Rooms cleaned daily with fresh towels. Balcony was tiny but it got the sun all afternoon till about 7ish. Pools are lovely, amazing views. Staff looked after us so well. Food and drink prices were spot on. Small supermarket over the road and bus stop. Eating places near buy. Close bus journey to ferry port and short walk to Popeye's village. Would stay again and recommend

The rooftop pool and area were out of order , re tiling the floor. We should have been informed about it. Once again the literature that you have sent out is showing something that was not available to me. I feel that I have been mis sold this hotel . It is still good value for money although if I had known about the work I would have booked the Maratin hotel a few doors down the street.

The only positive report was the Housekeeping by Millet made up for the inadequates elsewhere and would only rate as 2 stars; walls adjoining doors are paper thin so breaking your sleep etc

Nice hotel, shame about the building site

This hotel was wonderful, the rooms were nice and it's in a good location. it's stylish and clean and the food is great. However, we were in the middle of a building site. Unfortunately it ruined our stay and we did not make use of the hotel facilities because we just wanted to get ready and go out as early as possible each day to escape the noise. The hotel car park was being refurbished and from 7am there were the sounds of pneumatic drilling and hammering coming through the walls. In addition, there was a building site right next door to the hotel too, and we had the sound of the internal building work coming through the walls on the left side of the room, and the external building work coming through the walls/balcony on the right side of the room. Scaffolding had been put up AGAINST our balcony and first thing on Saturday morning we were woken by the usual shouting, banging and drilling - but when we opened our curtains there was also a massive crane being operated about 3 meters away! The noise was incredible, we couldn't go on the balcony or open the door and the room ended up getting very humid because the air flow was inadequate, our clothes were damp and started to smell. We ended up checking out early and made other arrangements. The staff on reception were apologetic, but kind of turned it back around on us and said that if we had complained then we would have been put in a quieter room. This is unacceptable, why were we given that room in the first place?

Lovely hotel

Lovely hotel, some parts a bit outdated such as the hair dryer. The pool and jacuzzi could do with some updating too. Food was lovely and varied. If wanting to try the spa wpuld recommend booking in advanced or soon on arrival as slots are limited. Very welcomed relaxing holiday
