Go for the view and forgive the grande lady's age
All as other reviewers say: rooms are dated but clean, view is spectacular. Hotel grounds very pleasant, staff at check-in excellent, barman at beach bar not so good. Hotel is making an effort with decor in dining rooms to make up for aged condition of the property. I enjoyed my stay and would go again.

Good location
This hotel must have been very lovely in its prime. Unfortunately it is in dire need of updating. The beds and furniture are very dated. The location however is fantastic and they have a beautiful beach and swimming pool on the property. The breakfast included was really good with a big selection.
