I was a little concerned about staying here after reading recent reviews on this website.
I found the hotel very striking amongst the others alongside it, it stands out from others and looks very modern.
Inside the check in procedure was kept to a minimal and we were processed very quickly.
Our room on first impression was lovely, very clean and set out well, with kettle, tea/coffee, mini fridge, dressing table. The bathroom had two sinks, with multi-function shower over the bath.
Loads of towels that were replenished daily, and beds made up each day with one change of linen during our weeks stay.
As we were a family, the settee was made up into the sofa bed which took a little of the space away from the room.
The biggest let down is the lack of seating both in the rooms and in the bar area downstairs.
There wasn't anywhere to sit and read in your room when having a cup of tea or anything else, except for the beds and a high chair that was for the vanity unit.
Apart from the sofa in the reception area and a few high bar tables and stools there was no where to sit and relax after your meals inside of the hotel.
Outside there were many tables, but if the weather is not good then there is no where to go except your room.
There is a pool to the rear of the hotel but there is never any sun on that area and the pool was freezing cold, a little pool for small children is available but again dismal and cold at the rear of the hotel.
We were all inclusive and had everything laid on, but on speaking to others who were half board, they didn't have a kettle in their rooms to make their own coffees.
The hotel was scrupiously clean and tidy at all times during our stay, the staff were very friendly and attentive (except for one bar woman, who was sharp and rude at times).
The cleanliness of our room was of a very high standard each day.
.Some of the seaview rooms had spa baths in the window, we could have upgraded to one of these if we had not been a family. The spa bath is in the place where the sofa beds go for the children, which is a bit of a shame for families.
This is a lovely hotel but just not for us.
