Friendly staff, good location, nice rooms

We stayed for 3 nights at this great hotel - and was very happy with our choice. The rooms had everything (loved the Nespresso coffee machine) and were clean and spacious. The restaurant is so nice for breakfast, lunch and drinks (did not have dinner there) In walking distance to everything.

Appalling service by Yvonne

We visited the resort along with friends. We were confronted by a objectionable lady called Yvonne. Some other ladies were crying in reception from how she was treating them and would not let their friend in. Nice hotel but terrible staff need changing.

Yvonne is extremely rude

Yvonne was extremely rude, we had friends staying here, have stayed here in the past, wouldn’t let us sit in reception for a few minutes . Terrible service from an extremely rude lady . I think some customer service is needed.
