Whilst the hotel has some good features, it's lacking in others, primarily location.
The first disappointment we experienced was its location. Our room at the front of the hotel looked out onto scrub land, and an unattractive low-rise block of flats. Also, the hotel is at least a mile from the beach, and a car is a necessity as it's no fun trudging back from the town centre late at night after dinner - 25 minutes and uphill all the way!
Needing a car to go into the town centre to find a restaurant, you then encounter the problem with parking, which can be very difficult. You can be driving round and round for some time until you hopefully get lucky! Yes, you are obliged to find a restaurant in town, as this hotel doesn't have one, it's rather like a posh up market bed and breakfast place with a swimming pool. They provide a reasonable breakfast, no more than that, and I found the egg & bacon quite bland. You then have to clear away your plates, and scrape the left-overs into a container, and stack up the crockery on a trolley. If you didn't do this, the two staff on duty would be unable to cope.
There's no safe deposit box in your room. We had to leave our passports, £250 sterling and around 900 Euros in our room in a suitcase.
The hotel has an attractive inner courtyard, but it is dead in terms of activity. Every night we went out, at around 9 o' clock, and it was always deserted. Needless to say on our return after midnight it was in the same state - silent and completely empty of anyone. It's a waste of space, scarcely used.
In summary, if you're looking for peace and quiet with no fellow guests around in a seemingly deserted building, this hotel will suit you fine. On the other hand, if you occasionally enjoy the company of others, and some evening activity with a drink, you won't get it here.
Firstly, some positives: The staff are very friendly, and the hotel is very clean throughout. Parking in the street near the hotel is no problem either.
