The stay was great, food out of this world! Just had a problem with the receptionist on arrival as we were not orientated regarding parking, dining hall and was not so helpful when it was indicated that breakfast was booked for one person instead of two.

We had a terrible stay. The room was not available when we checked in. We were offered no apology for the delay in getting our room ready. we were also promised a sea facing room but did not get one. the room was not clean, the staff were extremely noisy early in the morning. there was no air conditioner in the room. our room service took over 2 hours even though we were told it takes 20 minutes to receive the food. The food was not fresh. we checked out after the first day as we could no longer handle the noise (which continued through the night)and the poor service received. When we checked out early, the staff did not ask why we were cutting our stay short or offer any apology for the inconvenience we suffered at the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone

Exciting

Great reception staff, excellent breakfast, comfortable beds

The stay was excellent, just dissappointed with the booking as I made the fanily booking and had to pay extra fees for my children. The Hotel cleaning staff kept us out of our rooms for long, they only finished cleaning after 14h00 whilst the bed linen was removed at about 10h00. I could not rest because I had to be out of the room for long and this was a very cold weekend.
