The hotel is great, fab location, next to the beach, 2 minutes walk to the marina, the stop for the land train is outside the hotel, which takes you on a tour of the area, lovely little park nearby for younger children to play with. The hotel upgraded us to a fabulous suite with ample...

Room, itself, was spotlessly clean, a comfortable bed, easy chairs with table, satellite tv with good selection of programmes in English, large and furnished balcony...
