Great sea view room and useful to have a fridge for cold drinks etc. What a luxury to have someone clean up after you so no housework for our month's stay! Food wasn't as good as last year and didn't always correspond with the published Menu for the day (never did get the promised Baked Potatoes I was craving) but the menus are 4/5 years old now so I'm sure tastes have changed. I was really disappointed that all the vegetables (including beautiful baby carrots and peas) came drenched in garlic - especially on a couple of days when I had a dodgy tummy and all I wanted was some plain food. Great if you love pasta, salads or something with chips, but much of the food was getting dried up on the buffet and wasn't always hot, although there was a microwave you could use. Breakfasts were great and I could have eaten 3 a day! Unfortunately, toward the end of our stay, the hotel was full3 times with coach tours and it became a mad-house. On our last day, while sitting on our balcony enjoying the last sun of our trip, a man drinking with his friends decided to walk over to the car park and urinate by the side of our car, when he could have easily gone into reception where there were loads of toilets. Not the hotel's fault, but really not what you'd expect in a 'so called' 4 star hotel. One day 6 coaches arrived at the same time and the road was blocked so nobody could get into the car park and getting into a lift was chaotic. Add to that having to queue for a table in the restaurant (? cafeteria as it was totally self-service?) and guests like us, who'd been there for weeks were a little unhappy! Also we paid for a moth's parking but on one occasion someone had parked in our space and we were issued with a new one, but with no key - when we left they would not return our key deposit. Would I go again? I don't think so. Would I recommend? Yes but with advice as it was good value for money.
