Recently stayed here for 5 nights with my sister and can highly recommend the Crowne Plaza. The location is what makes this hotel stand out - next to the beach and the Marina.
Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice and the champagne was a welcome addition! Our room was enormous and the glass bathroom was fantastic. However, service in the bar area was poor and we quite often had to wait for ages to get a drink.
I had read all the horror stories about reserving sun beds at 6am. We put our towels down next to the pool at 8.30ish before going to breakfast and never had a problem! Yes all the beds around the pool were taken by 10am but this happens in every other popular hotel across the world!! You can't expect to arrive at the pool after 10am anywhere and get a bed!! There were lots of other beds available on the grass area as well. The only other suggestion I would give to improve the hotel is to sort the music out in the pool bar area. It was so depressing and sometimes the same song appeared to go on for hours!! Could we have some summer feel good songs?
Apart from this I would definitely recommend the hotel and will no doubt visit again soon.
