We booked a standard promenade room but when we got there we were upgraded to a sea view room which was huge. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. We found all the staff, even the cleaners very friendly and helpful. This was my second visit and we were not disappointed i any way. We have already...

Good location but room is very compact. Staff is friendly and helpful. However I didn't like room at all . It's too compact . Beach is so close that's only advantage . Quote and nice location. Nothing much to explore near hotel.

This is exactly what you would expect from a Holiday Inn. Good sized rooms, good bed (king size), small safe (not suitable for laptop) and all a little 70's. The hotel is well located with good public areas including a good sized dining room and a large bar. Currently creating additional f&b space on the beach which should be open...

We had excellent service from the staff on the front desk, who solved any problems. The meals were very good, with plenty of choice,...
