I stayed here for a week. All the staff were friendly and efficient and the room, one with a largish balcony and side-view of the sea, was spacious, the bed comfortable, the bathroom all as one would wish. You couldn't really see the sea, but you could hear it at night, which was lovely.
The public spaces - bar, lounges, of which there are many - were good, with comfortable furniture.
There's even a museum in the grounds, which is well worth a visit.
The breakfast buffet is splendid, with a very good egg-chef, and the evening buffet likewise: the fact that you can get your steak or your fish cooked for you there and then really lifts the catering a notch or two above standard hotel fare, and although there were some dishes which appeared to be standard there was plenty that was different each night. The indoor pool was a great way to unwind after a day's work.
I had to check out well before breakfast on my last day, and the picnic they gave me kept me going all day.
