Stayed at this hotel recently and it was just amazing, had a beautiful room with balcony overlooking the sea. Food was good and always served with a smile from Peter, what a lovely man. Plenty of sun beds around the pool or on the beach. Such a relaxing place for a chill out holiday.

We were booked in to the standard room at the front of the hotel, but were totally unaware of how noisy the street is.

We were booked in to the standard room at the front of the hotel, but were totally unaware of how noisy the street is. We arrived on Sunday tired and booked our meal for 8:30pm (it was the only time available). We managed to stay up until 11pm and went to bed. The karaoke bar was thumping, so I rang down to reception to find out what time the bar closed..... 1:30am! We tried to get to sleep, but after and hour were so tired my husband went to the reception to see what could be done. We were moved to another room at the back of the hotel and managed to get a few hours sleep. The following morning the operations manager came to find us to see what the problem was and said that the reservations manager would find us at lunchtime to see what other accommodation was available. She didn't find us, we went to reception and waited for her. Eventually we agreed we would pay more to have a quieter room and (to be fair) it was a lovely room, I think it may be one of the ones advertised on the website. Both of the managers told us that it is on the website about the noise from the bars, but I can't see it where it states the standard rooms suffer from noise from the bars etc. The staff are very good and we enjoyed the rest of our week, but I will not be returning.
