My wife and I stayed at WM last night! From the moment we arrived until we checked out we only received excellent treatment by the super friendly and helpful staff. The room was fantastic. My only regret is staying only 1 night.

This hotel has it all: wonderful rooms, seaview (from most rooms), excellent breakfast, and – most of all – a great staff! Everyone was very helpful, nice and just pleasant. I must mention Linda in the reception – an extra plus for her!
