We have been coming to this hotel for many years and although we keep thinking we should go somewhere else next time we want a beach holiday we keep returning to the Salt Rock. There is no hotel so perfectly located - literally on the beach - and even in season is very well priced particularly when you take advantage of their full board option. Whilst it's true that the hotel needs some serious repairs and maintenance, the staff make up for it. Always friendly and accommodating they are the reason the hotel is so wonderful.The fact that there are staff members including waiters who have worked there for thirty years tells one that this is a consistently happy place. As this is a hotel which caters for families don't expect peace and quiet in season. Ask for rooms that do not overlook the deck. The higher rooms on the far end are also much quieter. Do book for the Sunday lunch buffet - it's a very we'll attended and boisterous affair frequented by the town's locals. The daily curries on the pool menu are also not to be missed.
We will be going again.
