    Breakfast has a reasonable selection but no variety over our 7 day stay. Have stayed here twice before. There are long queues at the single coffee machine. Last year in feedback I asked that they install a second coffee machine or a separate hot water supply for tea, but nothing has been done. The bread, toaster and morning drinks are all in the same area. It is a bit of a scrum. Again, I asked last year for something to be done but no action has been taken so this is disappointing. We were half board and the food quality is good. More variety in the salad starter over 7 days would be appreciated. I was very disappointed this year that dinner time is now from 8 PM to 10 PM when previously it was from 6.30 PM to 10 PM. For my wife and I this is too late so will probably not stay here next year. The staff are very helpful. I wish to thank our waitresses Monica, Elisa, and Yana who were excellent in every way and thank Sergio and Patricia on reception. We had a room on the road side on the fourth floor which has a good sea view, clean, with a good bathroom. The kettle in the room was very useful. This year there was late night entertainment in the Cladagh bar across the street from the hotel and the volume was a bit high. It did stop at midnight which was appreciated. The hotel is 20 minutes walk from the railway station and 5 minutes walk from the promenade. There are BBC and ITV English channels on the TV.

This is probably used to reduce staff costs.

    Sergio at the desk was a super host. Nothing was a problem and he made us feel very welcome.

    Firstly let me say the staff were fantastic, the hotel has brilliant facilities and generally very good ,pool area and reception spotless , breakfast there was plenty to choose from and was very nice , our room was adequate and comfortable

    After a long first day we couldn’t get into our room due to batteries in the door needed changing, we had problems with opening the safe cause the batteries needed changing, a fire alarm at 8 in the morning yes you guessed it batteries, what’s concerning is no staff on any floors and the fire escapes locked, our dressing gowns turned up two days after we checked in and work going on at the stairs entrance to the pool surely a job that could wait till close season as it was just to shave a wall 6 inches , small minor problems that need attention before customers check in

    In general our stay was perfect. The breakfast was supper. The pool and facilities were supper. Bath and room cleaning was good. We have booked street side room and were able to get amazing view of the sunrise over the sea. Location of the hotel is just 100 m from the nearest beach. The staff is very kind and ready to assist always. On the day of our early check out we have got a take away breakfast on the reception which was also very kind.

    The only thing which disturbed our stay was the noise from the Irish pub across the street late in the night. It makes sleeping almost impossible but ear plugs helped in our case.
