There’s plenty of hearty British food on offer, such as pork and leek sausages with mash, while those who prefer a lighter option will enjoy the Mezze Salad; packed full of spinach, feta, olives and roasted red peppers.
Of course if you’re exploring the city then a late night might be involved, so room service is available 24-hours a day. For early-birds and night-owls, their smaller night menu is available from 11pm.
Enjoy the soft sand beneath your feet and take in the sound of crashing waves. There is something therapeutic about being by the beach. The coast is also great for families to enjoy a weekend away.
