I have looked up at this hotel countless times from the beach/dunes/water and wanted to stay here. The hotel is very nice, the breakfast was great. We were stuck with a view of a wall immediately outside of our room and found it to be very overpriced for what we got.

We stayed here as a young couple with a small child and was sceptical about the service we would receive as usually at this time of year there are many elderly travellers who seem to get all the best service. We were pleasantly surprised the service was outstanding everywhere including reception, restaurant, crèche and even house keeping. Special mentions go...

We have just returned from a two day break at this beautiful hotel. It definitely wasn't long enough!! The hotel was lovely, decorated and furnished in Art Deco style. Lovely position, set up on a hillside overlooking the lovely stretch of beach. Even though it was very early in the season, the hotel was well staffed with professional, polite and...

Had a lovely two night stay, fantastic food, beautiful views and very pleasant staff. Thank-you for a very enjoyable and relaxing short break. Would love to visit again in warmer weather or for an Agatha Christie style murder mystery themed stay.

We dined in the Terrace Restaurant for lunch and the view and food was fabulous. It was fairly busy for March and a week day. The staff were lovely although the service was a little slow but nothing to dampen the meal. The views really are fantastic!

We had a wonderful birthday stay at this lovely hotel. With an amazing view over the wonderful beach, our room was super. A good sized room, clean and well appointed, sitting listening to the sea from the room was an absolute delight. The restaurant was lovely as was the food; my wife, a vegan, was also well catered for. Staff...
