We stayed here in early May and were lucky enough to have excellent weather - thus we made good use of the large, clean outdoor pool. There is also an indoor pool which is well used sling with gym facilities.
The hotel is set on a cliff edge but with plenty of places to sunbathe with sheltered areas in the garden. No shortage of sun beds and permanent shades.
I took part in an excellent Pilates class which was held in a secluded part of the gardens but with a lovely breeze to keep us cool. The tutor spoke many languages so no-one missed the instructions.
Would suggest that you go for a room on a higher floor (ours was 7th) and we had superb views. Our superior twin had a lounge with large balcony plus bedroom also with balcony and a large walk-in dressing room and separate bathroom.
We stayed on Bed & Breakfast basis - good selection of hot and cold food and discreet, attentive dining room staff. We ate in the hotel in one evening - hot and cold buffet with a good selection of food to suit all tastes.
The hotel had two evenings with entertainment in the bar - one of the entertainers (a saxophone player ) was excellent - he made great efforts to get everyone dancing & playing music to suit each country represented. Everyone really enjoyed this evening. Other night with keyboard was not so good.
All staff from reception to bar and waiting & maid service were very polite & helpful.
We hired a car and would recommend this if you want to see area. We needed ours for golf outings although there is a local bus.
Would return here again - peaceful but very pleasant break.
