The SPA is are is really large and offers a verity of different saunas and pools etc. The hotel rooms are really small with really just a bed. The restaurant I have to say is the worst, quality of the food is really poor and the staff seems to have no clue about service. If I were to go to...

This hotel is quite a way out from the centre of town in the harbour area. The first impressions of the hotel reception and surrounding area is very good but unfortunately the overall experience was a little negative due to the very small size of the room given to us, just room for a double bed and very small writing...
