            Rooms were very spacious which was lovely. Nice seaviews. Bathroom was big. Can be bit more maintained but being so close to the ocean its also understandable. We really enjoyed our stay. Excellent value for money! Breakfast was great too.

            The staff were friendly but they could have done more to make our stay even more pleasant. We requested some snacks prior to check in, while we were waiting for our dinner at the spa. They couldn't assist. The bellboy wasn't available upon checkout we had to push our own trolley, while there was a staff member just standing around doing nothing.

            The hotel could do with improvements”

            The staff is very friendly and the breakfast was great. However the hotel needs some improvements: There are no fridges in the room so you expect guests to drink warm water even on hot summer days especially since you don't not provide dinner where do you expect guests to put their food? The beds at 2021 are due for an upgrade, there's nothing irritating than to leave a comfortable bed at home to sleep in a crapy expensive hotel bed... Oh and your bedding 🙄 looks like rejects from other hotels.
