Great views, amazing pools! Location good, rooms could probably do with a refurbishment, but the size and view made up for that.Reception on Sunday may be new but they didn't know you served coffee there.Special mention to the lifeguard, he was very helpful and polite.

The rooms were tired and quite dirty. The windows and balcony were really filthy and the carpet had obviously had a very cursory vacuum as there was grit and bits still on the carpet when we walked in.
