The gardens outside this property already identify this as slightly different from other properties that stand back from the beach. The large foyer area is pleasantly furnished and there is a stylish lounge bar. The conference and meeting market is targeted but their facilities are on the lower floor leaving the grounds to a large a pool deck. Although there are limited facilities specifically for families, this is a popular choice with all holidaymakers particularly because of its close proximity to the beach and relatively comfortable but long walk to the old centre.
From the beachside, this 5-storey pale-yellow, flat-roofed property is fronted by a small garden shaded by large parasols and shrubs. Many of the rooms, with semi-circular metal-balustraded balconies, overlook the road and properties to the front while those at the back have a view over the pool and properties beyond. The entrance to the property is a little way down the street and is marked by a set of double electric sliding doors with the corproate ‘Blu Hotels’ welcome mat.

The single height reception has a bright interior enhanced by the floor to ceiling windows to the front and one side. Polished tile floors and clusters of deep-cushioned wicker chairs and sofas are laid out in lounge formation in front of the long reception desk. The restaurant occupies the inland end of the ground floor with sturdy wooden furnishings at predominantly square tables. Towards the other end of the foyer is an attractive american-style bar with bistro-style furnishings and a tv screen.
To the rear of the main building is the pool deck which stretches vertually the length of the hotel and is surrounded by tiled terracing furnished with sunloungers and parasols. Adjacent to the bar, there is outdoor bistro style seating which continues in to the garden at the front reached from a narrow path to the perpendicular street. The grounds and pool are overlooked by neighbouring predominantly residential buildings.
