5 mins walk to Marina
Great location 5 minutes walk from the Marina. Really nice hotel but no table service around the pool you have to go to the bar to order and then go back to your seat to wait for delivery and at this point your prompted to leave a tip. Get to pool early or no beds will be available. This is really annoying and down to selfish guest leaving towels on multiple beds so they’re in prime location when the sun moves. No hot food provided from Room Service after 11pm this isn’t explained which was frustrating. Rooms a little dated but very clean and comfortable with huge bed and big screen tv. Only 1 chef at breakfast so takes a little while if you want an omelette. The hotel offer complimentary bikes which is a really nice touch. Lobby staff are constantly busy and feels awkward when your left to stand and wait.

Nice hotel but not for a special occasion.
We stayed here recently for our honeymoon. The hotel is nice, there are 3 good sized pools and the food/drinks are lovely. I wouldn’t recommend for a special occasion though as I was a little disappointed that we had told them of our special trip but there was no nice touches (eg a fruit bowl/ glass of wine on the house etc). We weren’t even able to have a late check out. We also didn’t expect there to be so many kids linos in the pool, or constant kids ball games. Overall would recommend the hotel for families. But not for couples who want to celebrate a special time.
