    The resort is ideally situated close to the beach and the room was most comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly and attentive and the room was serviced every day. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a good holiday.

    Service at hotel was poor. 2pm checkin was delay to pass 3pm. Had to eventually swap rooms. Toilets in the new room were messed, service at restaurants was so poor. Self catering with no stoves. Pool facilities were excellent.
