This is a nice hotel in a wonderful setting. Our sea facing room, plus partial view for the kids looked great and the trip started wonderfully...until we tried the air conditioning during a major heat wave. Generally we skip the AC but it was hot and as the night progressed, some terrible smells that seemed to be raw sewage filled our second room. The night clerk was great and tried everything but to no avail. When we advised the day manager that our family of five crammed into the one room to avoid the stench, he seemed indifferent. I totally get problems in August in Europe but the service was bad and the options presented were not great (e.g. move your kids to another floor). After another night they eventually found a smaller room on the same floor. So if it is hot, and your an AC type of person, beware. If not, great spot, stunning town and the swimming platform is a real gem on a busy day.
