We arrived at the hotel in the rain, but weather is getting better.
The hotel is rather tired and needs a lot of care and attention to get it to what most people would consider four star, it is at best 3* and that is being generous because of the huge bedrooms which usually consist of two queen beds, tea making facilities and a very nice bathroom but no walk in shower and not too much control of the heat/cold taps.
The main buffet restaurant is poor with very low level of service, cramped tables leaving very little room for moving about and a poor layout. The food at both breakfast and dinner was poor to medium and there was little availability of refills once the items such as fruit salad and porridge had been used up. They did cook made to order eggs which was very good.
However on half board dine around is possible and all the restaurants are very good, reasonable portions and a reasonable selection. Wine is medium priced and the Japanese restaurant allows a little payment to get some even better choices. The restaurant which does Italian food in the garden area is without doubt the best, great service and wonderfully cooked food.
The Spa which is located within the hotel part of Fortina Spa is also rather tired and could do with some work to bring it up to a good standard. Lots of staff who don't seem to do a lot except sit and direct people.
The Thalassotherapy pool is good although paint on the rusty and dropping off of plaster metal bits would add a lot.
The carpets throughout the hotel leave a lot to be desired with frayed and turned up edges leaving the place looking neglected.
Overall surprisingly poor for what purports to be a four star hotel.
