This is an excellent beach destination hotel, though a bit difficult to reach if one were flying in to a nearby airport. If you are driving it is ideal for a beach getaway. Hotel has excellent facilities, spa, beach access, a mini-golf course, a Table-tennis board, bird-watching, and even a large chess board with pieces. There is bar and restaurant...

We were a big group of 8 and booked 4 double rooms for 4 nights. Rooms were clean and spacious. Food was fresh and exciting. Also ate at the Italian a la carte which was special except for the insects ! Every day there was something different in the restaurant. Our teenagers loved it and were completely independent. Entertainment in...

Visited here with friends during October half term for 4 nights. When we arrived, the hotel was fairly quiet so we had a choice where we wanted our rooms, and we opted for ground floor walking out onto the pool - this proved to be perfect with the kids. It meant that during the day we could sit outside and...

Lets start with the positive: nice staff, very large and comfortable rooms, very clean. Right on the beach, but quite isolated as to finding some good bars and restaurants close by, especially out of season. However the quality of the buffet food was not at all what we experienced in other 4stars Iberostar hotels like in Agadir or Mexico. This...

stayed for 2 nights in september as part of a team building trip. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was pleasant. The pool bar was nice although the drinks were expensive. Didn't really interact with any staff or use many of the hotel facilities but it made a good base for getting out and about with colleagues.
