We spent the first week staying at the Civitas on Half Board. The hotel has been done up very nicely (our "room" was actually a duplex with bedroom on a mezzanine upstairs and a lounge area, kitchenette and bathroom downstairs) and is very well kept. Staff were exceptionally helpful - one of us had an allergic reaction to an insect... More

The hotel is very well maintained according to western standard. The hotel is immaculate and nicely appointed. The look and feel is classical, but not old. The beds were extremely comfortable, which allowed me to sleep in every morning. Really enjoyed the bi-level/ loft suite, which overlooked the main street and the ocean. The hotel staff were personable and engaging.... More

We stayed here in October for a week and had a wonderful holiday. All the staff at the hotel are helpful and very friendly. The whole place is spotlessly clean. The quality of decor and furnishings is excellent and I'm sure it will be even better when the refurbishment is completed. Breakfast was ideal for us, continental with enough choice.... More

We thought that the Civitas hotel was well run and maintained. The hotel is superbly decorated and our cleaner kept our apartment meticulously clean. All the hotel staff were attentive and assisted us with excursions, directions and recommended some lovely restaurants.

Mmmm........ If I had the option my rating would be GOOD, between AVERAGE and the VERY GOOD my four dots indicate above.
