Positive Reviews

Good quality apartments

Wide range of leisure facilities

There's a good chance that you won't get the chance to feel bored here. Guests tend to be impressed with the choice of leisure facilities on offer. Highlights include the 270 ft swimming pool and the various facilities in the wellness centre. Families appreciate the thought gone into providing facilities for younger guests.

Fantastic service from staff

The staff at this hotel attract lots of positive feedback from guests, with many finding the team friendly, welcoming and genuinely interested in guests. Check-in runs smoothly and reviews suggest you'll find the hotel's activities are well-organised.

Negative Reviews

Less suitable for mobility impaired guests

Although there do appear to be some ground floor apartments, guests do mention that this hotel and its activities sit in a hilly area with lots of steps. Guests with limited mobility should check the situation carefully before booking.

Wi-Fi situation could be better

Perhaps understandably, guests aren't thrilled about having to pay extra for Wi-Fi. Also, some guests, even when they had paid, were disappointed with the connection's speed and strength.

Some maintenance issues

While feedback about this hotel is generally quite high, some guests do report that there are a few maintenance issues. These include grubby looking sun beds and some damage to the pool's tiled edge. Other problems include poorly performing showers and dated furniture.
