Beautifully kept hotel with extremely high standard of cleanliness and friendliness of all the staff. Good choice of buffet food. Fabulous setting on the beach, lovely pools with plenty of spaces to sit. Unfortunately went when the weather was unsettled and the beach had been eroded by storms but they were importing sand to rebuild! A half hour journey to...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, and the jet2 deal was good value for money. Transfer took approx 1h45 both ways. It all depends on what your expectations are on star ratings. Personally I feel this is a good 4 star and not 5. Customer service is very good from all of the staff. Although you do feel the...
