my husband and i have just returned from a weeks stay at the hotel. we arrived at the hotel at 12 noon we were told our room would be ready between 1 - 2pm , we returned at 2pm and were told by the same receptionist that he had no idea when our room would be ready. whilst we understand that we arrived early to check in , we would have had no problem waiting if we had been told from the outset that our room would not be ready until nearer 4pm.
however on getting our room we were very pleased and pleasantly surprised at the standard of the room, lovely and clean with a fridge and safe,and a fantastic view.
maid service was excellent and the room was always spotless.
as for the food ,we went half board and found the evening meal very disappointing, as previous reviews have stated there was only one choice of meat, potato, and fish every night and exactly the same veg . desserts never changed and by the end of the week we didnt even bother with them.breakfast very chaotic at 7.30 and on a few mornings hot buffet very limited eg only boiled eggs available one morning.
all that said we had a lovely holiday and found hotel to be very clean and staff if not very chatty but helpful if asked
