Great position for beach and marina, very clean hotel, breakfast lovely, and the cleanest outside pool toilets I have ever seen, they are beautiful. This is the second time staying at this hotel and we book this again for next year.

The hotel isn't too bad, but the constant thumping of the loud music coming from the pool facility opposite the hotel means that you can't even sit out on the room balcony in the afternoon or evening without getting a headache. The noise starts at 8am and just thump thump thumps throughout the day...almost non stop. The bass tones are so loud they make the lamps in my room vibrate, and I'm 100m away. I'd find another place if I hadn't already paid for my week holiday here in advance. This might be a seasonal thing...but it is a thing.

Third time staying in this hotel. A great location as it is on the beach and a quick stroll to the fantastic marina. The hotel it self is a good standard with every area kept very clean. We went with the large family suite on this occasion which was ideal as you had a bedroom, living, dining and a kitchen area. Well worth the small fee to upgrade. The hotel is not really set up for families with young kids as golfers seem to be 75% of their trade. However the hotel did put on entertainment for the few kids which were staying which we felt was a very nice touch. Only had breakfast in our package and was pleasantly surprised with the variety each morning. The bar was fine but the only downside was the staff seemed to give the top tippers (Glofers) priority at the bar . I did have a quiet word with one of them about this and it did help a little.
Overall a great value few days with a large very spacious room.

Room tip: Take the family room. Well worth it.

Roll-in shower was superb, general layout of the room very spacious and my wife (wheel chair user) was able to get on to the veranda without assistance.
Cuisine more than suited a Type 1 diabetic and the staff were always on hand to clear tables and help in any way they could.
The Manageress was eager to assist and inquired about potential improvements to the room - with the option of a raised toilet seat could be made available.
Surrounding area, including the Marina, and nearby towns was in walking distance and on the flat.

Room tip: There is only 1 room with roll-in access to the shower in this hotel.

This hotel is in a great location between two hotels that are approx double the price. For the price you pay it does a decent job. Nice pool area, nice rooms. We paid a little extra for a sea view room and the views are great if you get a high floor. Happy to recommend.
