Great food and open every day, not expensive even though they seem to use fresh ingredients. A daily special with fish and home made pies etc so should suit all. The big thing here is its got a fab pool and garden, the owners are upgrading everything winter 1016 The Staff were great even when run off their feet!

The unique selling point for this place is the pool. The bar itself is average at best and a little tired. The swimming pool in the beer garden is great but the staff are quick to point out that you can only swim until 5pm. They state that this is because the life guard is only on duty until 5pm... More

We went here for breakfast as on previous years holidays to Santa Ponsa we really enjoyed the meals here ( not sure if it's under new management) but unfortunately this visit was terrible. We ordered the small English breakfast with coffee. The breakfast arrived after about 15 minutes but the food was cold, the sausage wasn't cooked all the way... More

Thank you for leaving a review, I am very disappointed that you didn't enjoy your breakfast with us. It would have been better if you had told us there and then so we could have addressed the problem. I can assure you that the produce we buy is of the highest quality. I do hope that if you ever give... More
