We arrived at the hotel at around midnight and the porter was looking out for us. We were really lucky to get a parking space though as they are very limited and tight. I booked a family room with a cot, this was all set up correctly when we arrived. The room was quite standard and packed; there was no room for the children to play. Breakfast was good, the staff were friendly they had a high chair and made the children eggs and sausages as requested. When we checked out of the hotel I was asked to pay an extra £5 in addition to the payment I had already made via TR for the cost of using the cot. I'm not very impressed by this as I booked a room with a cot so didn't expect to then be charged more; other than that it was fine.
Top Tip: The play hut near the tunnels beaches is amazing, my kids had a great time. It's clean, inexpensive and serves great food for adults & children.
