I drove to the hotel, and managed to find a space in the overflow carpark at the top behind a small petrol station and taxi rank despite the barriers being up and the carpark indicator explaining it was full. The very friendly check-in staff explained this was okay and the parking was free. It would have been useful for a small A4 prinout sign to be placed near the payment machines to explain this as I did walk around for five minutes to try and establish how and if I should may.
Check-in was swift, efficient and pleasant. The staff pointed out that my HHonours account number wasn't registered and would I like to join the scheme, as a member they swiftly added my number to the account, I guess it was protocol, but a useful heads up to ensure the points were added.
The room was of a similar Hilton standard to most properties I've stayed in with the same expectations of comfort of a Hilton, especially the bed and thread count. Some people on TA mentioned it was tired in the room, it was not a modern refurb; but more than perfectly acceptable for the chains standard rooms.
Breakfast was the standard Hilton fayre with the healthy option counter, again I really could not fault.
The drinks were slightly more expensive at the bar (9.50 euro for a cocktail); however I decided to explore down town. It is a 30 minute walk or a 6-7euro taxi fare into the old town. There is actually a taxi rank office just up the small slope in front of the hotel entrance where the overflow carpark is, I'm sure the Hilton staff would also call one for you, I'm just a little more independent.
I also had room service, at one point during my stay, again I couldn't fault, very nice food, good portions and excellent service.
Wireless was expensive at 15 euro; however as the hotel management keeps pointing out to TA members making the point, it is about the same for the island. The free reception wireless is very poor, speeds and coverage are not the same as the paid for wireless. It would be nice to get wireless around the pool area at a good speed, but I am just a bit of a geek and should be doing some more laps.
In my mind, a very much typical Hilton from experiences across Europe.
