Went in July 2015. At the time they were having a complete redecoration before the school holidays . The guys painting and doing the refurbishment never got in the way.
They were friendly even though they were sub contracted.
Anyway we were in room 28 which has the most amazing view of the sea. And there was a full moon that week too and the view out of the kitchen window was stunning, the reflection of the moon in the sea. <3
Sorry, off subject again
We had a self catering apartment , door straight in to the bedroom, then the bathroom with bath and shower, and then kitchen diner, it was basic but very clean and perfect for what we wanted. The bathroom was a little dated but I believe from talking to staff our room was next up to be refurbished after we left. But it was clean and we were quite happy with it.
The staff were very helpful and polite, always seemed happy, and chatted when needed and good morning / afternoons as we came and went.
I think they thought my partner was a bit of a goer as he had taken his ex wife and twins there 1 week before I went with him there !
We didn't eat at the attached restaurant as I have food specific allergies and it's a Mexican restaurant, but we did try out a few fish bars and a couple of pubs which were all lovely.
Over all I would love to one day come back and stay again and visit some memories of our holiday (sadly my partner passed away unexpectedly in October 2015 )
There are some lovely places to visit in the area , small bays, rock pooling on the main beach, the Spa is just a short way away, and when you open the windows in the morning you can hear the brass band playing down there, it's lovely, I do hope to come back some day xxx
