Excellent facilities, staff very helpful. Close to beach but need to take the shuttle bus to go down to the beach about 5 mins journey. Only downside is that you have to pay to hire the hotels sun beds for half a day/ full day which is an unnecessary expense.

Service was good. Breakfast was the only downfall. The food was cold for the 3 days we were there and for a 5* hotel I would have expected better. Good from the restaurant however was fantastic and the front desk were very accommodating and lovely.
