We booked through the easyjet website - which only showed views from the 5* hotel on the same site. The hotel is situated on a park - the grounds are beautifully manicured. The 5* hotel is located at the cliff/sea end of the site, whilst the Residenza is based near the entrance by the road. I understand that the rooms at the back of the hotel do have views over the grounds. There was no restaurant at the Residenza (although the hotel web site says there is!) just a dining room for breakfast. Any other food on the park grounds was served at the 5* hotel. There was no room service menu (although the hotel website says that room service is offered), no kettle in the room, no information of the hotel, it's site or the facilities. We were only allowed to use the pool by the Residenza - mosiquito repellent a must - very grumpy lifeguard/pool attendant. Access to the hotel beach €35 per head per day at the weekend, €25 per head per day on week days. There is a beach restaurant which generally has reasonable food - but our most disappointing was €24 for 3 small prawns. The food at the 5* hotel was sometimes good, although I wouldn't say exceptional - we did have lobster which was very over cooked. The rooms are clean but functional. We paid more there for 4* (I would rate them 2*) than we have paid elsewhere for 5* and the service just isn't there.
