Arrived 2days ago for a weeks stay. Received an upgrade on check-in to a room on the 3rd floor (top floor) with a wonderful pool and sea view. The hotel is beautifully laid out, with manicured lawns, huge pool creatively designed with roman steps at both ends, and plenty of comfortable sun beds with parasols for the much needed shade. No need to bring pool towels, these are available from reception providing you return them each day. Our bedroom is large enough to store a set of golf clubs without them being in our way, mini bar is empty great for keeping our bottled water cold, toiletries replaced every day, and BBC News 24 & Sky News Channels available on the flat screen TV. There is even a little souvenir shop that sells, essentials, postcards etc. The children's play area and pool are amazing, it has it's own fenced off area, is immaculately kept with the same manicured lawns. The marina is a 10 minute stroll away (all on the flat), with the old town further on accessed via a pedestrian bridge. Apologies for the length of this review, but sometimes knowing the detail helps make the right decisions of where to stay, and like the title says, it's just right.
