I stayed at this hotel 15-22 May 2017 on a golfing trip. The twin rooms (we had room 222) were just tiny, far too small for 2 adults with golf clubs. Fortunately, we had a small balcony but the glass wall between the bedroom and Shower/toilet was a first for me, having travelled world wide for many years. The room...

Our check in experience was adequate, but it was downhill after that. When we returned for the keys there was no organization as to whether or not the rooms were clean and available. The towel system at the spa is ridiculous, the staff In general are horrible. The cleanliness of the hotel leaves a lot to be desired. Everything is...

Good service at check- in if a little labour intensive.Rooms clean and adequate. No kettle. Excellent beach side location. Salt water pool and amenities all a little tired but adequate. Breakfast excellent . Good variety and quality. All self service. Bar and restaurant service and attitude of many of these staff was poor. Long waits and poor menu.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in May 2017 on a golf trip with 7 other golf nuts. The hotel was part of a package arranged by Golf Kings from Glasgow. The hotel is comfortable with good sized bedrooms and balcony/patios. There are no tea making facilities and the breakfast was average which causes me to down the...
