Our 7th floor room had breathtaking views of the pool, the sea, the cliffs and the beach. The colours were fantastic. The room was spacious and in very good condition with a separate bedroom with comfortable beds, lovely bathroom, kitchenette and walk-in wardrobe. The hotel had a friendly 'nothing is too much trouble' atmosphere. The reception staff were very helpful,...

I can't fault the hotel pool and sunbathing area as it was all lovely. Some of the staff I found unhelpful especially a woman called Elsa on the reception desk. We were charged for 4 buffets at €96 on check out although it was only myself and my partner staying and she was rude and very abrupt towards us. And...

Enjoyed our stay here. The weather could have been a bit warmer but what do you expect in March. The heated indoor pool was a bonus plus jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. Lots of exercise equipment if you want to torture yourself. Lots of loungers and plenty of space overlooking the sea. Staff very friendly. No complaints.

Nice and clean hotel, good rooms and views. The pools are good (in and outdoor), easy to get a lounger. The food was of a good standard, breakfast buffet was to a good standard, but repetitive.

Stayed for a week with friends and had a quiet relaxing time in the sunshine.One downside was that the kettle(which was very small) in our room had to be plugged in near the door into the room low down on the wall, the tray of mugs was at the other end of the room.
