Spent 3 nights at hotel in August, room clean as was most of hotel and it is not too expensive, but it is not a 4 star hotel! The staff at reception were either very good or completely indifferent to peoples' requests I do not know if they were short of staff but there was often a large queue waiting to be seen. We requested additional pillows (only 2 in the room) on a number of occasions both by phone and at reception, sadly they only arrived on the last day.
Agree the breakfast is good with plenty on offer, but there is no help offered by staff on what the procedure is on your first visit, nor if it is self or waitress service. The coffee out of the machine was cold and I was told to use the alternative nespresso machine, however after 3 attempts all of which failed, they admitted the machine could be tempermental!
The best way to get to the city centre is by bus, the stop is only a block away from the hotel and costs only 2 Euro's. The closest Metro, is a good 10-15 minute walk especially in the heat.
If staying and wanting to go to the beach ensure you take your own beach towels or you have to rent them from the hotel. None of the rooms appear to have a balcony so it can be difficult to dry swim clothes and towels after use
Also be aware that you will be charged additional local taxes on top of your room rate, not large but could be a problem if you were short of money at the end of your holiday.
There are a limited number of restaurants around the hotel and the beach area only has 3 restaurants which vary in quality and price.
I would say this hotel is perfect for the business traveller with lots of meeting rooms but limited social areas, I would not recommend it for families.
