We visited this hotel last year when we went to see some friends who have a place in the area. The outside facilities of the hotel are really nice, and the hotel is overlooking the sea. The room we got was ok, but nothing more. Nice breakfast and a really nice service.
This year we came back for three days, and we were really disappointed. Since we thought the room was a bit too small last year (a double room with an extra bed, which there wasn't really room for ..., for our daughter), we booked and prepaid for a bigger room. Imagine our surprise when we got the same room with the same arrangement!
I think they must have been out of rooms of the size we'd booked and paid for, but instead of telling us and pricing the room therafter, they thought we wouldn't notice if they gave us the double room instead of the triple one! Unbelievable!
The rooms were renewed. However, the renovation of the hotel wasn't finished, and unfortunately the air condition didn't work. With the heat and a room without a breeze, it was impossible to sleep.
This, combined with a horribly unwelcoming receptionist and a breakfast that all days was lacking the essentials. It doesn't help if the breakfast is good, if there's nothing there.
Last year I would have given this hotel a 4, despite the horrible receptionist and a so and so-room. This year, however, despite renovated rooms, nothing worked, we did not sleep, we did not feel welcome, despite the fact we were there for the second time, and above all, we were swindled as we did not get the room we had paid for.
We are not coming back and we have told our friends there to be careful when recommending this hotel to other visitors of theirs.
