Stayed for a week as a golfing holiday. Hotel looked nice if a little dated and the apartments were clean. We were very thankful for the kitchen as the food was very below par both at breakfast and evening, with the latter having some very funky menu choices. Fortunately there is a good supermarket close by for breakfast shopping and...

We could see the general aspects of the hotel and surrounding area on the internet. What we could not anticipate was the picturesque hidden scenery so close to this hotel. At this time of year the area is not overly busy and it is a good time to take advantage of this, with what turned out to be an unusually...

Lovely spa and golf hotel, staff are lovely, rooms are kept beautiful, clean towels plus bedding regular, choose a room that looks over the pool plus sea. Only downfall is the garden furniture, the Sun lounges need a good clean, seagulls around!! Plus lounges are not that comfortable for a hotel of this standard.lovely restaurant around.

We tried the evening meals for the first time this year as I'm put off by the fact that it is buffet style. As it happens the meal was...

We came here in 2016 and returned in 2017. The room view is like paradise. The breakfast has a lot of options. Excellent Spa. Lovely and willing to help staff. Plenty of beautiful beaches and cliffs to see. And local restaurants serve delicious food. Special thanks to Lurdes Varela. She made our boy feel loved. Definitely coming back.
