More 4 star than 5 star hotel
We stayed at the resort 4 nights. Great location and nice walk to the beach. We had a few issues with the reception staff. When we asked for the manager, the issues were resolved. When booking for the stay we were are not aware that only 2 the restaurant was open. At lunch time the nespresso cafe was open . But limited options on menu. The evening buffet and breakfast was adequate but not of a 5 star standard. The crepes in the morning was tasty and freshly made. Pools outdoor not heated. Rooms were clean and spacious. A few shopsand restaurants around hotel.

Wedding celebrations
The rooms in this hotel are lovely and the showers are especially fabulous. The beach is amazing and all of the pools we used were clean with an excellent towel service. Breakfast was really nice and well organised. Because it was out of season when we went it was not easy to get snacks as sometime the pool bar was closed. Evening meals in the main restaurant were ok but not the best I have had and in the small restaurants the service and food was not the best. The only place to get drinks in the evening was the reception bar which destroyed the atmosphere somewhat and the bar closed at midnight. There was a nasty smell at the doors leading out to the pool which was a bit off putting. The stadf did an amazing job for the wedding day and made it really special dispite the rain.

Good stay with room to improve.
The service was great and good buffet selection. The pool was beautiful and the hotel itself was modern. Negative points include being charged for still water to the room, no ironing board being included with the room, and there only being 2 restaurants open during our stay. Also, the Italian restaurant needs to have clearly labelled allergy information as it is very unclear.

Have stayed at this hotel many times and it never fails to impress. Unfortunately on this occasion our trip was cancelled with the Coronavirus pandemic. I hope all the staff have stayed safe during this difficult time. We will be back when we can!
