I have just come back from a 2 week trip with Thomson to this hotel and overall the hotel is good. I will list the positives first. Staff are very friendly and helpfull. I booked a suite with a sea view there are only two of these on the 7th floor but worth every penny. Massive bedroom and adjoining lounge area with a massive patio area with loungers, people can look onto you from the roof terrace but its no big deal. Free safe with every room. Hotel is very clean and rooms are cleaned every day with bedding done 3 times a week. The holiday reps are very helpfull and have lots of info with plenty of trips to keep you occupied. If you dont like whats on the food menu that evening have a word with the head waiter and he will sort you something different out a very helpfull and friendly bloke.
Now the bad points. If you have a normal room on the 7th floor your balcony is pathetic at best it can only be described as a strip you can stand on, dont think about trying to fit a chair on it. There are 7 suites only 3 of them have a good view of the surrounding area. The other 4 are on floor 1 at the back of the hotel and surrounded by glass partitions. The food is ok but sometimes doesn't taste like what you would expect, the yorkshire puddings were choux pastry!. If you are staying a week then it wont bother you but if you do 2 weeks i would recommend dining out a few nights. Drinks are over priced as with any hotel but 2-50 for a can of cola is a joke. You will have to order a drink with your dinner as well as you cant take them from the bar into the restraunt.
