Location great, staff friendly.”
Room was spacious but fixtures were worn, loose handles on cupboards. Ants in the bathroom...... Great location on the beach and the food was great. Accomodation is overpriced for what you get, you get better value for money in continental Europe.

From the minute you walk in the door to be greeted by William the doorman to the moment you leave, the personal service you receive is second to none. The colonial atmosphere and ambiance, the amazing sea- side and lighthouse views and the standard of food are all first rate.

lovely place, but disappointing food”
This was our second visit - probably our last. The breakfast had definitely deteriorated: mediocre quality pastries & bread and badly presnted hot dishes, including VERY cold bacon. And for our anniversary dinner in the grill all four of us selected chateaubriand which was tough and rather tasteless. My ceviche starter was also lacklustre. All in all a great let down as our previous visit was superb. Maybe it was because they were very full for the bank holiday weekend.

Lovely stay for our anniversary. Will definitely r”
Great pool, lovely views and great food. Such a lovely buffet breakfast with endless choice and variety and the grill for dinner was superb.
We felt truly spoilt during our stay, such a shame it was only for one night but we will definitely return. The restaurant and front of house staff were efficient and friendly. The pool was lovely although I did feel that the staff there could have been a little more atrentive while they seemed to stand around charging quite a lot instead. I did overhear another guest giving out to them about this and they did seem to increase their levels of attention to guests. We used the spa changing rooms to get ready late in the day which was great although air conditioning is definitely needed in the changing rooms. Overall a fantastic stay and will be sure to return.
