We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Atlantico!!!
It has the air of vintage seaside glamour, with plenty of modern comfort and very welcoming proprietors to offer guests a relaxing and satisfying stay.
It was exactly what we were looking for and we can't wait to come back...and stay longer!! :-)
The hotel staff were kind and very helpful, and the location was so convenient- just a few (5-ish) minutes walk straight down the main road from the train station and the pine tree park, on a pretty side street right off the main thoroughfare of shops, bars, and restaurants. Everything was so close and convenient! The beach was a quick and pleasant walk through a quiet residential neighbourhood, and the castle and museum were also only 5 minutes away.
There was a heated indoor pool, which was an unexpected treat, especially as we visited in the spring, when it was too cold to put more than our feet in the ocean. We were able to have a luxuriously warm swim, followed by a glass of chilled birthday champagne by the pool, which made us feel like glamourous movie stars from the golden age of Hollywood! ;-)
The rooms were simply furnished but very clean and perfectly comfortable, with touches of elegance in the curtains, shutters, and balconies. We actually had two balconies with seating and potted plants, which added to the feel of holiday glamour! :-)
It was great to have good wifi service in the rooms, and the mini fridge was also a very welcome amenity (to chill the champagne!;-) Having a lift was really helpful, as one of us was recovering from an ankle injury, which made any stairs a challenge.
Breakfast was a bountiful buffet, comprising an assortment of breads, toast, jams, cakes, pastries, cheese, ham, fruit, yoghurt, and freshly squeezed orange juice ( which was 'to die for'!) ! The various hot drinks were dispensed from a highly-efficient machine, which seemed to do its job well.
