We visited this hotel in March for 7 nights half board, having been 4 times before with coach parties. The staff are all extremely efficient and friendly, the rooms and communal areas spotless and the food very good.
Situated as it is, just a stone's throw from the beach, we had lovely bracing walks along the coastal path before breakfast.
There is a bus stop right outside for those without their own transport, and of course, on the Island, everything is within easy reach. Having been several times, we are now greeted like friends, and consider it a home-from-home. Having read some of the negative reviews I think maybe some people just expect perfection. Yes some of the decor is a bit 'tired' and it is unusual these days to have sheets and blankets instead of duvets, but I don't find that a problem, as long as everything is clean, which it is. This is a two-star establishment, - if you want luxury then you will have to pay more and try a 4 or 5 star. Or just stop 'nit-picking' and relax and enjoy your holiday - as we did. We will certainly go again, and again!!
