Stayed two nights whilst attending a wedding. The organisation and function suite were fantastic.
The good: Wonderful views (if you stay, definitely opt for a sea view), comfortable bed, spacious room, pleasant public areas, excellent food at dinner, free wifi.
The not so good: Were told room may not be ready at check in, booked one double and one twin room but reception had to enquire as to which room was which, limited number of electrical sockets in bedroom (only place to plug our kettle in was the window ledge), room very warm as the rooms lack air conditioning.
The unforgivable: Mouldly toast served to us at breakfast (no real apology offered for this and says a lot about quality control in the kitchen), fifteen minute wait for a table at breakfast despite tables being available, just staff were not clearing them quickly enough (we were told this happens all the time).
Overall the stay was fairly pleasant, but at the prices this hotel charges, there needs to be more attention to detail.
