stopover

Pros: The decor was very trendy but not intimidating. The bar and pool area are very inviting and the staff friendly and attentive.
The hotel is beautifully decorated and accessible to the shore i.e. a short walk. The staff were very helpful and I managed to get an early check in which was much appreciated.
