We stayed during the first week of February 2013 - weather wise it is there winter too so a bit cold and windy on some days and a jacket was needed, on others it was sunny and warm. Hotel reception, waiter and cleaning services were excellent - they could not be more helpful. We stayed in a superior double room which I think is worth paying the extra for especially if, like me, you find you need to spend a bit of time working and need a good internet connection - that came free with the superior room. During the week we were there most hotel guests seemed to be retired germans and though conversation can be difficult without a shared fluent language we found guests to be pleasant and courteous.
The view over the lago and to the sea was fabulous and the variety of food at breakfast was very good in my experience of Spannish hotels at this star rating. There are also many good restaurants in the area.
There is a very good cafe next to the hotel called the Cafe de Paris. The coffee and cakes tasted delicious BUT the staff were grumpy and bad manered - to be fair to them I think there were far too few of them to properly look after so many occupied tables ...so they were always rushed off their feet and their frustration showed in poor, abrupt and slow service to the customers. A lesson there for the management if they read these webpages... as we did not go back despite enjoying the location and food.
Overall we had a really great week there and did many new things in exploring the island so we would recommend this hotel - it's location is excellent - and we would stay there again.
