    I love this little gem. There is nothing I dont love about this lovely hotel.

    Everything. Second time here. Breakfast is wonderful. Buffet style. Scrambled eggs. Crispy bacon. All varieties of bread, pastries and other bakery foods. Cereal. Yoghourt. Lovely coffee. The usual continental meats and cheeses. The decor of the hotel is beautiful. Blue and white maritime with lovely pictures and a lounge area. Pool is clean. So close to the beach and the main shopping area. Lots of bars and wonderful restaurants.

    there has been nothing to be blamed, expect myself, for enjoying the place one day only.

    Excellent location: 2 minutes Walking distance to the beach. Yet at the same time 3 minutes away from the city center, too. The quality and the great choice of the breakfast was 5* like, inside in a very bright room or outside in the garden - very pleasant indeed.

    A very nice stay for uncomplicated people

    Only minor inconvenience, nothing worth mentioning, the elevator was rather slow, there are no parking spaces directly at the hotel, but I didn't mind to walk a bit (parking possibilities within 7-15 min. walking distance).

    Very nice atmosphere, nice colour design to feel good, uncomplicated family atmosphere. I felt comfortable and at ease. I liked the floor tiling in the hallway and in the stairwell. Also, it was very comfortable that the breakfast was until 11:30, so everybody could come and eat without hurry. The location was not directly on the beach but very close, also close to the main street with shops and restaurants, yet it was nice and quiet because not directly next to it.

    The room are small and outdated, I had to ask for an additional chair to put my clothes near the bead (originally there was just one). It is impossible to park near the hotel, so I had to use their garage (14 Euro a day !) that is below the hotel with a very(!) steep ramp and super crowded inside. I had to put (a lot) of extra care every time in order to not damage my car!

    The common area are nice and up-to-date. The Breakfast is abundant an varied, I enjoyed it.

    We had a tinyyy room, which was nothing special at all. The hotel allows pets so we had to struggle with guests above us throwing ball against the wall at 7 AM and then hear the dog pick it up and so forth for hours. The dog did some howling when the owners went for breakfast. Upload speed of internet was really bad, not even good for skype. Downloading things was ok. As a conclusion, we will likely not stay here again.

    Located not far from the beach, nice staff and nice lobby area.
