Lovely hotel situated very close to beach restaurants & shops. It has a lovely pool with hot & cold tubs on a raised level overlooking tho pool. Our room overlooked the pool & had plenty of sun throughout the day. The staff always willing to assist you in every way to make your feel welcome & enjoy the stay. Breakfast was delicious and plenty of choices hot/cold buffet coffees teas & juices on offer. We will certainly stay here again when visiting next time.
