We spent 2 nights here in August. Unsure where to book we took a punt on this place and we were not disappointed. Lovely, well equipped, modern, spotless and great value for money. Its not beach front but is only a few steps away. The room had a lovely little kitchenette so if you wanted to have nibbles and a wine (or cook in) before going out for the evening, it was perfect.
We would definitely stay here again rather than pay twice as much for a 5* resort - you just don't need to.
Lastly on another note, one night for dinner we ate at The Reef House, it was beautiful - great service and gorgeous food. Enjoy ....
