Great location but rooms noisy
We stayed full board in October (off season) and during COVID-19. The entrance and ground floor look to have been recently revamped. The included lunch and evening meal were excellent and the house wines had great flavours. Breakfast could have been better. The COVID Safety measures were not the greatest as masses of people in groups before meals and lots of people refilling disposable water bottles at the water dispenser. The out door pools were not clean or heated. No indoor pools. The sandy beach was brilliant with great waves for surfing. The rooms had a good layout. With thin walls hence noisy at night time. Exterior walls could do with being repainted.

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The rooms haven’t been maintained or updated in years. Everything was broken, water poured from the bottom of the sink, the shutter to the non existence balcony was broken and wouldn’t go up, resulting in a very blacked out room, a screw stuck out from the tiled floor, the beds were lumpy, the air conditioning was so loud it kept us awake...certainly no 4star hotel!
