“Tremendous value for money”
Reviewed 25 February 2010

Hotel decor is a bit tired but offers fantastic value for money. Good food, great drinks on the all inclusive deal and friendly staff. Service in the dining room is excellent- best I have experienced.We paid extra for sea-view room and this was a good move. We got a reasonably sized clean room with the luxury of a bath. Some of the travellers in our party had rooms which only had showers and no bath. If you want a bath make sure you inform the hotel. Entertainment programme was good. We didn't bother going on the first two evenings and were surprised at how good it was when we went on the third night.

Booked 'all inclusive' with Shearings. Excellent value for meagre cost. Food, service, staff
all great. Entertainment first class. Only drawback was smallish bathrom with shower only. All in all couldn't believe what we got for our money. Don't believe some of the bad comments, some must be never satisfied!

Having read some of the reviews I have to re address the balance. This hotel does not pretend or cost the same as a 5 star hotel but in it's price range it offers excellent value for money. The rooms and bathrooms are not spacious but are adequate. The food and service is more than adequate and very friendly. The trips very very good and the nightly eneertainment was of a very high quality, in fact better than some cruises I have been on that cost considerably more!!!. Would highly recommend for the 50+ age group. the fact that kids are not catered for in my opinion is a big bonus.
