Excellent value for money. Basic accommodation - I booked room only so can't state an opinion on the food. Hotel very well situated, staff friendly, lovely roof top area with plunge pool though able to swim in the sea just 5 minutes walk away too. Comfortable bed and decent shower. 2 lifts and a ramp by the steps - I was using a walking stick so ideal! I intend to book there again next year.
