A group of us stayed at the Hi-Hotel over the summer for a wedding in the area. We chose this hotel for the rooftop pool and the private beach. Overall i think we were all quite disappointed given this is an expensive hotel and comparing it to other hotels across the world which were far far better for the price.
We stayed in a range of rooms from the cheapest double to the most expensive penthouse (400+ euro per night WITHOUT breakfast!) and all were well designed but lacked any kind of storage space for clothes, and were honestly rather impractical.
Certainly not for couples who don't know each other well, we stayed in a room where you could see your partner going to the toilet in a glass cubicle and it ventilated into the room! In fact one of our party requested specifically not to have this room when booking but was still placed in this type.
Rooftop pool was ok, despite pictures small though, could only fit 4-6 people sitting in it and very exposed to the sun due to lack of any shade.
Breakfast was good, not sure about the eco credentials of completely disposable cutlery (they should do a life cycle analysis on this).
Beach was good in fact, but given you can go there if you don't stay at the hotel, you're better off staying somewhere else.
