We were looking for the hotel which has a 2-rooms appartment and is not very far from both the beach and the city centre. This hotel was well suited, and a big advantage was that it had an appartment/room plan on the website, so we could judge which room type would be the best for us. Our appartment had, as mentioned above, 2 rooms, and a balcony. A flat TV was present in each of both rooms, which was quite nice, since we had our child with us, so he could also watch his movies separately. The balcony was in our bedroom, which was also very clever, because we could control the kid entering the balcony. The balcony was big, clean and nice, and at least enough separated from the neighbors, so we could get a littly privacy. On the other hand, the view was not very exciting, since it overlooked a narrow and sometimes noisy street. The only positive was a cute antique Villa opposite to us, which was pleasant for the eye by its archtechture and white color. I was very surprised to see a magpie patrolling the roofs every day the same time. This charming black-and-white bird was very worth mentioning here, since it animated the view greatly. Otherwise, big seagulls, doves and black birds were usual visitors of our visible landscape. Actually, the black birds singing in the sunset was simply amasing (they had probably a mating time, and males manifested themselves by beatiful singing). Back to the hotel room, the bathtube was a bit outdated, but very easy to step in it because of the low positioning. But plasitc curtains should not be the standard of a 4-stars hotel, right? Toilet room was huge and quite clean. In general, it was a nice and clean appartment, very spacious, with the soild but somehow outdated furniture. The worst was the smell in the corridor, which I tried to combat by an air-freshener. Actually, I could not understand, what that smell was, and a very similar smell was also very characteristic for the entrance hall of the hotel. It is really difficult to describe what exactly this smell was, but it was quite unpleasant and even agressive. The pool there is a nice place. Huge, and well designed. The kids pool is situated within the big pool, but a way above it, so the parents are able to see their kids from each position being inside the big pool. Only the air of the pool area somehow is overheated, well above +30°C. We did not use the pool outside the building, as well as all other SPA services. The food was great, especially dinner. The breakfast ist somehow not breathtaking, rather intermediate. We had a full borad there. A salat bar was just OKay. Cheeses were also in the salad bar, and they were very good. Table vine for the dinner is not to recommend. I would advise to have the vines from the bar or just order a bottle. The service in the dining room was good. I kept ordering very simple spagetti dishes for our kid every other dinner, since he was not used to adult restaurat food, and it was done fast and without extra charge. The area around the hotel is charming. In the front of the hotel there is a small marine with numerous boats. Behind the hotel, just across the street, there is a no-cars street leading all across the town. It is just a 10 min walk to the historic centre, and just a couple of minutes to the beach. The beach is huge, huge, huge. Of course, we were not in the bathing season in april, but in summer the place must be surely overcrowded. Thousands of umbrella sticks populate the grounds. Definitely not the place we would choose for the summer. I would say, this place should be great in May or in October. But it depends, of course, on what you really want.
