All rooms have brilliant sea view, with good balcony. All day sun, plenty of room in the bedroom, all have a fridge. There is never any trouble with the residents, the rooms were immaculate clean. The bar and loung area is very spacious, with pool table and card tables. A great selection of food at breakfast, no complaints at all

Another fantastic weekend stay at this hotel, can't fault the location, the staff or the food. This is our fourth visit on a girls weekend and they are more than accommodating. The hotel is right on the beach and just a few steps away from the village with its numerous bars and restaurants, excellent
