          It's a good place, but not somewhere to go if your looking for something special. Would suit small families or couples seeking a quiet holiday. Nice place to use as base if you want to hire a car and explore the island

          Can anyone help me with a bit more information about the area around the hotel? Is it quite expensive to eat in the restaurants round there? We are also travelling with a five-year-old is it good for children? Thank you
