Staying in self catering rooms at the back of one of the Annexes - quiet and soulless
The location of the hotel is excellent, right next to a pebbly, sloping beach (the water's edge is a bit harsh as the sea goes from up to the ankles and then you are up to your waist! - not sure how I would feel about bringing my grandchildren here) A smallish pool, but more than adequate. Relaxing sofas on terrace. Very good food. Friendly and efficient staff. I cannot comment on the hotel rooms as we were in the Annexe which is across the road from the hotel. We were more than comfortable in our room here, but felt very isolated from the hotel. If we had said children and grandchildren with us, we would have been happy here, but it was a bit soulless for us. The bedrooms have frosted panes of glass and are fixed so that they can only open a few inches (this was probably part of planning permission to keep neighbours happy). The view from the terrace faces the private property next door with mountain views in the distance (a lot of vigorous leylandi have been planted between the Annexe and the private property next door so hopefully, as they are now up to the neighbour's roof, they will be lopped so that the views to the mountains will not be compromised. The air conditioning unit is also fixed at 19 degrees so if you like to really chill, this would annoy (it did me!) although my husband was happy. I would certainly return to the hotel, but stay in one of the rooms in the main building, eating meals there and generally feeling part of it all.
