Booked quite late for a week break in the middle of June. Not our main holiday and therefore, wanted value for money. First trip abroad without our children who stayed with grandparents. From the moment we checked in and the lady on the reception, with a mischievous grin, referred to my wife as 'Mrs Humper', I knew this was going to be a good break! (Our surname is Humphreys by the way - so not offended - perhaps a language problem or perhaps she could read my mind....?).
Hotel doesn't look much from the outside but inside was clean and tidy and our room had been refurbished. Pool area was small and peaceful (outside of school holidays!) and there were plenty of sunbeds all day long. No problem getting drinks and bar staff very friendly.
Food was of good standard and there was a reasonable choice. I have been to plenty of hotels where there is more choice but this was more than adequate for even the fussiest. Service was very good at the all the bars and restaurants and staff were eager to please. A small tip along the way certainly helped but was not expected.
Private beach was quite strange as you had to go outside of the hotel grounds and across the road. Not fenced off but seemed quite secure. Beach bar for refreshments and sandwiches made to order at lunchtime. White sand was very pleasant and would be ideal for young children.
All in all, a very pleasant trip and a hotel that was well worth the money. In my opinion, in life you generally get what you pay for. In this case, I think we got better value than we paid for. Well worth a visit.
