I stayed here with my husband, 2 children and parents at the end of July 2012. The hotel is family run and the staff were all really lovely from the polite lady on reception the chatty friendly chambermaids and the (quite stressed and overworked) barman. We were booked in for 3 nights into a standard family room and upon arriving at our room we found we only had 2 beds (1 double and one single) for our family of four. I spoke to reception who said it wasn't a problem and they would put an extra bed, I asked where they hoped to put it as the room was already quite cramped but they managed to squeeze a smaller size bed in. I was told that on the following night there was going to be a wedding at the hotel with 200 guests and that our room was directly above where the reception would be so they would do their best to move us. I am so pleased that they did as we were given a ground floor room with large balcony overlooking the pool with a fab sea view! Definitely worth the upgrade if we go again (shame it didn't have air con like the smaller room although it was a much cooler room which helped) Despite the large wedding we had no disruption whatsoever and the staff were still on top form and eager to help. The food was absolutely out of this world! From the buffet style main courses to the amazing dessert and cheese trolley, you could just not fault it. Again, the waiting staff were wonderful (especially the lovely Sandra!) The children ate earlier than us and loved is and were entertained by a wonderful magician one evening whilst we ate. The outdoor pool (a bit 'murky') and gardens are beautiful, the indoor pool great too. There is a lovely walk down and across the train track to the beach with bars, restaurants, go karts etc. We really had a lovely time and would definitely go back. It was pricier than we usually go for (around £550 half board for 3 nights) but the staff and food made it worth every penny. Dogs were welcome t the hotel although we chose to leave ours behind. I do think it would be better if they were kept on leads as I came across a couple of piles of mess but these were picked up promptly by staff. Some owners also allowed their dogs to lie on the sofas in the communal lounges (we sat up and watched the opening ceremony of the Olympics one evening) which I think that is a bit unfair. All in all a lovely break away.
