Also we had a large room with kitchenette (not really needed as all-inclusive ) but the new owner is refurbishingvthecrooms and taking out the kitchenettes (and putting sofa). Good location with shortest flight of steps to beach along whole promenade, but...

We stayed for 5 nights in November, nice looking hotel, situation right by the beach via a little walk down some wooden steps. Views over the beach and sea are fantastic. Would say this hotel is definitely more for people who like a peaceful holiday. We only had breakfast at the hotel which was adequate. There are several restaurants down...

The hotel is very attractive although the bar area is small and this must be a problem when the hotel is full. During our visit mostly only Saga guests used the bar - probably because Saga currently have an All...

The hotel is lovely with very good bedrooms, beautiful garden area , lovely swimming pool with good sun loungers around it. The beach below it is beautiful with lovely sand and great walks, also lots of excellent restaurants. In the town in front of the hotel are lots of excellent restaurants and interesting shops. All in a very friendly area.
