Great hotel, very nice & clean rooms. Massive breakfast (including sparkling wine). Well worth the upgrade to sea facing balcony.
However, don't book any activities through the hotel. They are building a time share nearby and I saw a 'tour' going through the hotel lobby as a sort of model of how the new time share building will look. I suspect the tours run by the hotel are partly to sell them. Also, we hired a car through reception which turned out to be a bait and switch. The receptionist had given me a flyer for 'avis' car hire at E25 but when the car came it was from another company at E45 a day!! Plus it was filthy and had massive dents down the sides. By that point we didn't really have time to find another car and just took it.
So overall I would highly recommend the hotel, but book anything else through your rep or tourist office.
