Went for a week's holiday at the beginning of October. Really nice hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. We used the beach every day, beach towels are provided. The choice of food was good and varied. The hotel was 10 minutes walk from the old town which is worth visiting. Definitely worth going again.
