The Hotel is set on a steep climb down to the beach. I would not recommend it for people that have difficulty taking stairs, there are slopes that can be negotiated if steps aren't your thing, even some of those can be on the steep and slippery side. The staff at the beach bar are very friendly and efficient, the staff in the lobby bar are on the slower side to take your order, however, they are friendly. Men are required to wear long trousers from 4pm in the lobby bar, this in my opinon is too early, as the only other bar is the beach bar, and whilst we were there last week the winds were very strong, making sitting outside a challenge! I think tailored shorts for men would be fine. As in previous reports the sun bed issue is a problem, however, even if the hotel did supply more sunbeds, I don't know quite where they could be put as all available space did seem to have a bed on it. They do ask for beds not to be reserved however, this of course gets ignored and is not enforced by the hotel. There are 3 cabana's that can be hired for an extra 30 euro's a day, however, they were empty for the majority of the week, which seems ridiculous for those not able to get a sunbed. I think the hotel really need to re think about charging for those, especially those choosing to be AI. The food was lovely, varied every lunch and evening, the restaurant Mirabello is lovely and I would reccommend booking and eating there more often than the main hotel restaurant as the setting is just gorgeous. We had a fantastic week with great friends.
