We booked this hotel as part of a family gathering and were very disappointed. The room was tiny and next to the noisy lift. The shower was so feeble it was hard to wash your hair. Staff were friendly at times, but sometimes behaved as if customers were a nuisance. The food in the bar and restaurant was disappointing. The only strengths were the lovely location and the beach. Although the staff were attentive to us, it was not a good hotel for young children. It was also very difficult to park near the hotel which meant a long walk with bags from few streets away. I would not recommend the hotel.
