    The view from the balcony was fantastic: palm trees, beach and sea. The employees were very kind and helpful. Cleaning was done every day with fresh towels and toiletries. Beach was very close, just across the street. The old city was quite near, at 10 min by walk. Rich breakfast.

    The parking was hard to access. We had a place difficult to get in. You needed many manoeuvres to put the car in. And surprise, it wasn’t free. 10€ per day. Expensive, being clients of the hotel. And we weren’t told that from the begining...

    The only thing is the expensive private parking. But you can find plenty of spaces around the hotel.

    The location is the thing we like the most. The beach is right in front of it and the Town centre is 10 minute walk

    No retaurant, we asked if we coild have an evening meal so we did not have to go out on a night of very heavy rain.We were told that it was not possible, suggesrted we order a take-away pizza and eat it in our room!! The breakfast was not good ,no choice of cereals, no fresh bread ,only rolls, only tinned fruit in a fruit growing area Also disappointed in bar and sitting areas, no great comfort. When booking on line, the indication was that there were only two rooms left. on one night I think we were the only residents??

    The location just acroos road from lovely beach ans promenade and within walking distance of old town. We had a room with a balconyn anf sea view

    The hotel is located very close to the city center and the beach, but the main street in front of the hotel can be noisy, but windows are good enough to cancel the noise during the night Bathroom could be more modern and a bit bigger

    The hotel has a small elevator, one person and one large bag capacity. There is no handicap or limited mobility available, 4 stairs to come into property, five stairs to level with elevator. Breakfast time is too short and food is not replenished if it runs out. Tiny bathrooms and skinny cot beds.

    Across street from the beach; Rooms and lobby were clean. Breakfast food selection was good.

    Handy to the old town.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    Unfortunately not what I envisaged. A bit shabby and rundown. 'Beachfront' it technically is but right in front of the hotel is a very busy noisy road so we didn't sit on the balcony enjoying a drink as the sun went down as I'd hoped for. There are lots of house rules written on notices to the side of the lift e.g. the cleaners won't clean the room if you leave clothes lying around, checkout is strictly 10am or they charge 10 euros per hour or part thereof if you haven't handed back the key and any food removed from the dining room at breakfast is considered an additional expense and charged - I've never ever stayed somewhere where taking a piece of fruit with you at breakfast is a problem.

    Handy to the old town.

    The breakfast is only between 8-9:30, which in my opinion is too early when you are on holidays. It should be at least to 10:30 like in other hotels. Nice view towards the beach, but the balcony is small and the road below is very noisy, so we didn't enjoy sitting there.

    Overall good stay.

    The view out from the balcony of the ocean was fabulous.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    The room was about half the size as was in the picture. The shower was about a meter square with a cloth shower curtain. I've been in small showers but this one was too small. You couldn't sit on the toilet straight because it was too close to the wall. The whole place was tired. The first person we met upon arrival at the reception desk wasn't too helpful but the others were. Would not recommend it. It would have been better to pay a few more euros a night and get something comfortable, especially since we were there for a week. Since we prepaid, we had to stay. They also didn't have parking and it was a hunt to find a place each day for the car.

    The view out from the balcony of the ocean was fabulous. Room was cleaned every day.

    Breakfast only between 8 and 9:30. You have to vacant your room by 11 and not come back before 2pm if you want it to be cleaned. So lack of flexibility in general. The wifi didn't work properly. The water temperature in the shower changes all the time.

    The room with balcony and sea view really offers a wonderful atmosphere. The location is great: just in front of the beach and 20 min walk from the old town. The room is big enough and the bed very comfortable.
