its 4 years last October since our last visit and had only been on bed and breakfast before. It has easy access to the marina and the beach. We chose this again as we were very happy but a bit apprehensive with some of the latest reviews, we needn't have worried it is still a lovely friendly staffed hotel. Of course we had some broken sleep but what do you expect with the summer peak holidays. The air con brought welcome relief to the heat of the day and on the colder nights blankets are at hand in the room should you need it .Towels are changed daily as well as the rooms cleaned by diligent staff. Breakfasts were to suit everyone even freshly made pancakes for the children ,one hiccup the coffee machines are awful and the coffee urn is cold by 9 am why not have a heated urn an easy solution. A queue forms about 9.50 so if you don't want to queue for breakfast get down for 9.15. Snacks and drinks are available by the pool and plenty of shade if you need it. Animation team try hard and keep the children happy at night with a disco and animal shows. Towels are provided so some guests insist on reserving sunbeds even though a letter in your room asks everyone not to. The evening meals are excellent a well stocked salad bar a choice of hot entrees with samosas and Pizzas and chips for children or anybody else that fancies a change .A choice of 2 or 3 hot meat dishes and always a hot fish dish as well. An excellent dessert with a choice of cakes ice-creams and wonderful fresh fruit. If you have room to spare a choice of 4 different cheeses with crackers and bread. We will return
