Having just returned from this hotel after staying for a very enjoyable week, I am in the process of rebooking for next year.
The view from the terrace, bedrooms and lounge is breathtaking especially at sunset and a real treat is to sit whilst enjoying a glass of wine and watch the sea. The newly refurbished lounge is modern and light and there is plenty of room. There is no bar but the lounge service is very good and drink orders were taken quickly.
The huge advantage of this hotel is the way that children and families are catered for. The hotel has its own kid's club/creche 'The Den' where the staff were amazing. I can't rate them highly enough!! Ro and her team were so helpful and my children loved them. In fact my older child wanted to go to the Den in the morning rather than go to the beach! The staff were able to loan me several items, which they have for guests, such as a buggy, sling and toddler step which all make travelling with small children a little easier.
The hotel also offers a high tea in 'the Den' which suited my children. This allowed me to have dinner later.
There is a play park, indoor pool, tennis court, cinema room and room with games, computers, pool table etc... which again all make a holiday with children easier as they have things to do.
I stayed in an older style room which was fine for the price. However, having seen one of the family rooms which has been refurbished, I will be booking that next time as it has two decent size bedrooms, a great view and a large bathroom .
The downside to the hotel was the service and food in the dining room. On occasions, the service was very slow and although this improved there were only a few diners to cater for. Dinner is expensive and for the price I think the service and food should be better. The portions sizes were sometimes very small. I also had to send desserts back twice to be reheated. There was also a non changing menu which means if you plan to eat in the hotel every evening, which we did, the options become limited and repetitive. There were specials but these were the same for 2 and even 3 nights so in my mind not really specials. I also think the lounge bar food menu could have more variety. Hopefully by my visit next year all these issues will have been sorted and I can enjoy dinner in the hotel.
Overall though, the hotel has a huge amount to offer and for a relaxing holiday with children it really is ideal. I'm looking forward to next year already!
