Stayed here in October, and enjoyed a good stay with free welcome cocktail. Nice well appointed room and good bathroom. Room had annoying lighting in the ceiling which we could not turn off.
Hotel is not located on the beach, but about 200m back, surrounding area is wasteland awaiting development. Great Pool area but there was no shaded area even in the Poole bar area. We had disappointing lunch in the pool bar and had to complain, burgers were raw...... Breakfast was ok. main bar was nice and staff were good.
