This was a very nice hotel with decent facilities, although we did not make the most of those available. Although it is positioned a short drive from the marina and central area (around €10 in a taxi) it was an excellent base for those wanting to take advantage of the many golf courses in the area.
Very enjoyable stay in a well equipped garden villa with pleasant surroundings. The rooms are of a high standard however the decor is becoming a little dated but not tired. The rooms have a TV with English channels, iron and ironing board, plenty of towels, toiletries and a hair dryer.
There is an indoor and outdoor pool, children's play area and a gym. Many of the garden villas overlook a large pond which us quite pleasant.
There was a very good selection available at breakfast but the only other food I ate at the hotel was from the bar menu. It was ok, but the service was a little slow considering we were there in low season and there wasn't that many guests.
The golf course was decent and competitively priced when compared to some of the bigger courses we played on our visit but having a driving range on site proved very useful. They also have a locker room next to reception where you can secure your clubs to save having to carry them back to your room each day. It's free if charge so I'd recommend you take advantage of that.
All in all, we had a great stay and would certainly return.
