All I can say is WOW!!!
We (me, my mum, auntie & my cousin) booked a 3 night get away expecting it to be cheap and cheerfull as we didn't pay much and we vowed to 'make the most of it' if it wasn't very nice, we were just going for a bit of sun shine and some chill out time.
When we arrived it was quite late, gone midnight and we were quite hungry & thirsty. The hotel staff had kindly made us a 'late supper' which consisted of cold meats, cheese & salad, along with bottled mineral water all FOC! It was a very nice touch.
Our rooms were lovely, very clean and a good size. We each had bathrobes hanging in the wardrobes and a bottle of Champagne and a huge plate of fruit waiting for us, this was another nice touch! Made it feel very luxury!
Breakfast was awesome, buffet style inluding full english, bread rolls, toast, fresh fruit, cold meats, cheeses, cereals, yogurt, danishes and pastries.... AND pancakes with chocolate syup! It was only breakfast time and the diet went completely out of the window!
Lunch times we ordered cheese and ham toasties from the bar area outside which were yummy, as the main restaurant food was slightly too heavy for what we wanted.
Dinner was amazing....not only did they offer a main menu which consisted of Roast lamb, vegatables, swordfish, Veal (you name it they had it) they also offered a self service buffet including a salad bar with fresh tuna and pate, you could chose to have either steak, salmon, white fish or chicken breast to be cooked right in front of you, just how you like it... potatoes, rice, vegatables, pork, chicken curry, deep fried aubergines, pasta, soup, everything was so fresh and tasty. Waiter service was provided for any drinks we wanted to order.
Desert was great too, all different types of puddings, ice cream and a cheese board with crackers if you could fit it in!
The staff in the restaurant were very friendly and efficient, everything was very clean and cleared away just at the right time.
The pool area was lush, again very clean although the water was freezing cold but that's because it's only May, fresh towels were available and we didn't have to fight for a sunbed. We could see right over a little private beach which had a jetty and the water was very clear. We stopped for a drink in one of the little bars that looked out onto the beach, the drinks are cheaper than the hotel.
Considering the price we payed and the expectations we had, we thought we had hit the jack pot!!! We just couldn't believe how nice it was.
Now this is the part about the spa....treatments were slightly pricey but if you have enough money I would reccomend having atleast one treatment. The indoor pool was lovely, fairly warm with sunbeds all around and a jacuzzi, beautifull gardens with comfy sunbeds, with a waterfall. The spa had a sauna and 3 steam rooms and fresh towels were provided FOC.
I could write so much more but it still wouldn't justify how nice this hotel is, so book up and see for yourself.
