5 of us stayed for four nights in a king and a twin double room. Arrived tired and jet-lagged at 8.30 am and we were delighted to be given the twin double bedded room straight away. A knock on the door at 11.30 informed us that the king room was ready. The king room was very spacious and had a balcony looking out on the esplanade. Both rooms were nicely furnished and the beds were very comfortable. Unlike some other reviews we had no problems with the air conditioning in either of the rooms. There was plenty of towels and toiletries however the bathrooms are tiny but functional. Loved the fact that the fridges were empty and we could chill our own drinks. I agree with a previous reviewer that wine glasses would have been nice! The pool area is lovely and the on site bottleshop serves as the pool bar. We had breakfast for two people per room included in our rate along with stay for four nights and pay for three, through Trailfinders. Breakfast buffet was excellent with a great variety of options. Very pleasant staff from the duty manager Aaron on check in to Sue on the tours desk. The only minor gripe for us was the hotels pc's are pretty slow and internet access is not cheap. Free wifi would have been nice.
