“It's difficult to really comment on value for money as one can't compare two trips like for like”

“The staff were helpful and courteous throughout. Even though the first hotel was dire (none of the electric sockets worked in the rooms and the hotel was pretty shoddy) I cannot fault the staff. The last hotel and the beach were great. Several of us would have liked to have an extra night or two at this hotel in order to wind down and enjoy the facilities!”
