Recently returned from a 5 day trip to The Ocean View, with Robinsons coaches. I am probably much younger than the average guest at this hotel, and took my mother who has mobility issues and also my 2 pre teen children. I was a little unsure, before travelling, as to the wisdom of taking children on this type of holiday. However, my fears were groundless and they had a wonderful time. Although, this is not what I would generally call a family hotel the staff and coach staff went out of their way to accomodate them. Although they did not publish a children's menu they did make meals to their liking, on request.
The room that we had was huge, yes a little tired and in need of updating, but then so do many hotels. The bathroom was also very spacious. Room was serviced daily. We had a huge balcony with a spectacular view, as I said "Now that is what I call a sea view". No hanging out of the window with a pair of binoculars to see the sea 3 miles away.
The food and entertainment is geared towards the older end of the market, however, I think a holiday is what you make it. We had an excellent time and the value for money was OUTSTANDING.
I would most certainly return.
