Close to centre of town with bars and restaurants everywhere, we were half board and the buffet breakfasts and evening meals were so good we only had a snack at lunch time.

Unfortunately that was all of the positives from my perspective. This hotel is seriously outdated from the old and wrinkled carpets that partially cover the corridors to the mould stained and chipped tiles in the...

You can not beat the location of this hotel. It is a step onto the beautiful and busy beach with loungers to rent (15 euros for the day for two, not run by the hotel) and plenty of water sports. We chose just the bed and breakfast option which meant we could enjoy eating out in the old town every...
