This hotel has very nice public areas, a very good spa and generally good competent staff.
The only downside we found was a very small bed in our (standard) room.
When we arrived we were greeted by two very good members of staff one of whom helped us to park the car using their car lift.
Help with baggage was offered immediately.
The room we had was a standard double, clean and with nice bathroom, shower gels etc.
The only reason I would not give this hotel five stars is a small bed and small television.
Having said this I suspect if one went for a superior room this would not be a problem.
The health facilities are excellent with a reasonable sized swimming pool, a large Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and very well kitted out gym.
Breakfast the following day was again excellent in a very nice restaurant overlooking the sea and beach. Full English was served with a continental buffet and the usual supply of coffee and juices etc.
Overall an excellent hotel - thoroughly recommended.
