The hotel itself is well presented and you can see why it had such a reputation in its hey day.
Happily, we were upgraded to a sea view room, which was lovely, but if you pay for a sea view room I would recommend you request a high floor. The ground floor sea view rooms are overlooked by the sunbathing area which is right next to your balcony. As lovely as the upgrade was, it meant we had to keep the curtains closed if we were in the room during the daytime as you always had sunbathers directly outside. Can't complain for a free upgrade though!
The pool, whilst it looks good from a distance, is showing signs of wear and tear around the tiles at the sides and on the floor. Having said this the pool area is very pleasant.
The dining room is great and for a buffet, the food is not bad at all for the most part. Typical buffet food but it is one of the better ones. Breakfast is very nice but would be great to have fresh orange juice instead of that machine stuff.
There is also free wifi, albeit only in reception, but it works.
The hotel could, as other reviewers have stated, use a lick of paint and the rooms an update. They could really be uplifted with small things like new shower heads, taps, curtains & re-grouting tiles and painting the balconies.
The rooms are a good size though and pretty comfortable.
Location wise it's perfect, right on the front with a lovely beach, and promenade with lots of restaurants, shops and bars.
Overall a good hotel in a great location. Just needs a bit of TLC
