We stayed over the Easter weekend for 5 nights dinner bed breaksfast, we have been before too, the food is really good and the views from the resturant and sea view rooms is great, especially if the sun is out. Waking up to that view through large sliding doors is great its almost like being abroad. My video shows the view
The hotel is an old hotel and everything else is nice but some areas are in need of some updating, the beds are very basic mattresses so not that comfortable and doubles are two singles pushed together. It has all the facilities you could want, indoor out door pool lots of kids play things inside and out.
one of the rooms we booked had a balcony that wouldn't open, part of the ceiling on the balcony had obviously come down so they locked the door form opening wide enough to get out. There was no mention of this before nor were they willing to help of change rooms. They came up with a stupid thing about due to the weather erosion or something. But it was just a loack of maintenance. They offered a tiny discount, but after much arguing gave a bigger discount, but this was not the point, the room was booked with sea view and balcony and the balcony was not useable. This is very bad and did spoil the stay somewhat.
