A nice pleasant hotel situated on the beach front within close walking distance of the very attractive marina. The hotel was very clinical, with basic entertainment. An adult only hotel which was very attractive and meant a very sedate atmosphere which was very appreciated.

This hotel is situated right next to the promenade which leads onto the beach. There are lifts to all levels including the promenade.and most of the guests are...

So, let's leave the...

We could not find anything negative about this hotel but then why would we ! It was the most relaxing holiday with a superb room on the 5th floor overlooking the roof garden sea, harbour, and pool. Staff were always polite and made you feel welcome and yes front line staff as well... Rooms were large with tea coffee facilities...
