This hotel is closing early April 2016 and being taken over by Elegant Hotels and will be fully re-furbed.

Plus points - nice beach and you could walk along the beach to other properties (Cyrstal Cove being the first one). The food was really good. Lots of fresh fish everyday and a good variety. Buffet style at lunch times and evenings was a la carte. Sparkling rose and white wine always available and plentiful (not usually available in other AI resorts). Friendly staff.

Negatives - property is small and split either side of a main road so half the rooms on the beach side will have a view of the road. It didn't seem like an AI resort, it was more like a hotel. Only 1 hotel bar but they did have someone to get your drink orders on the beach in the mornings and afternoons. Seemed a bit tired in places but this will change in the refurb.
