Stayed for 7 nights in a standard twin room with sea view. Welcome was poor, greeted by pleasant young porter but no one to point out reception, no welcome drink after travelling since early am and not so much as a smile from reception - Sergio please note. The room was tired, especially the bathroom and could do with considerable...

Stayed beginning of May, booked via Thomsons. Allocated a room on the 5th floor to the rear of the property, which I would not recommend due to the traffic noise. However this did recede at around 11.30pm but started up again in the early hours, e.g. bin collections!' Don't bother with the rep's meeting unless it has significantly improved. No...

We first stayed here in September 2010 and were impressed with the location and the overall experience delivered by helpful and pleasant staff. Any criticisms were minor and not worth mentioning.
