Stayed half board, great location and staff were very helpful. The rooms are big spacious and clean, and serviced daily. If I was going back I would stay here again for the hotel.
My one negative would be the food. It was all a bit bland and lacking in any real imagination. Salads were given names like nicoise, tabbouleh but were extremely bland. The special dishes each night of beef stew, chicken curry, pork casserole, coq au vin all promise so much but tasted the same - a different meat in a different coloured sauce each night.
There was however every night freshly grilled beef, fish, chicken, and pork chops however the lack of culinary imagination for a 5 star hotel did leave it all feeling a bit like a canteen. The only dish that actually tasted like it should was a chilli con carne...
All in all a nice hotel however with year one catering student cuisine. But if you can live on grilled plain meat and green salad and chips each night then 'fill your boots' :-)
I personally would opt for the bed and breakfast option and eat local until the food matches the hotel 5 star rating.
