Well I can honestly say this was by far the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. We arrived at about 9 in the evening, at reception they just took our passports and gave us our room number, no welcome no other instructions about availability of a late dinner. thankfully the stand in for our rep told us that a meal would be available for us in the dinning room, and passport would be returned in the morning. I have to say that the guy on reception proved to be the most unfriendly person you could ever wish to meet, and not many of the other reception staff were much better. think they were on the defensive as we understand there were many complaints.
The evening meal turned out to be two slices of processed cheese and a desert spoonful of rice salad, desert was a very under ripe peach. my thoughts then were " this does not bode well" and I was proved unfortunately to be correct. Throughout the week the food was cold , of poor quality and very little of it. There was only a choice of two with each course, one night our main course was a piece of roast chicken with spinach, nothing else. Pudding was always fruit , except for gala night when we were treated to the smallest slice of an Almond ice cream confection. Breakfasts if possible were even worse than dinner, continental only , or the most overcooked scambled egg, or boiled egg, but worst of all a cup of tea was only warm not made with boiling water as it should be, cannot say what the coffee was like as I don't drink it. Beverages were not available at any other time, but could be bought from the bar with massive mark ups. Most people seemed to be taking in their own water or wine, and the waiters seemed not to notice.
The room was ok, was very dated but reasonably clean. we had a sea view which turned out to be a very bad mistake, as the terrible music below went on till 1 in the morning most nights and all sea view rooms were particularly exposed to this.
The swimming pool looked ok although I did not go in it, the sun loungers round the pool were plentiful and were not readily occupied as on trying the ridged plastic beds the proved to be so hard and uncomfortable that half an hour was all we could bare. So we found that the ones on the beach some 90 steps below the hotel were marginally more comfortable.
By the middle of the week we were in dire need of some decent food , so took to having a really nice lunch out, so at least we were not to hungry when presented with some of the horrors from the hotel kitchen.
The final straw came for us when on the last evening we enquired about the promised curtersy rooms only to be told that because the hotel was full there were not any available, but that if we got out of our rooms early we would get guaranteed storage of our suitcases until 4 that afternoon. In fast the maids were knocking on doors trying to hurry people out of their rooms before the 11 am deadline. There were no public toilets in the hotel apart from those in your room, there were other toilets, but for some reason the hotel kept them locked. There were many people leaving at the same time as us and because of pressure from us they did eventually leave the toilets in the Blue Bar open.
I did have a pop at one of the reception staff about the general standards at the hotel, but he was unimpressed and seemed incapable of even seeming remotely sorry. In fact I asked him if he was sorry and he refused to say so. So I think this particular hotel was run for the comfort and convenience of the staff rather than the guests are rather than nothing being too much trouble everything was too much trouble.
I note that amongst these reviews are one or two glowing reports, I will leave it too you to decide as to their authenticity.
Any room would be poor, my advice would be give this hotel the widest birth possible, and steer your...
