We found the hotel to be a wonderful place - we visited it at the end of our 1 month in Europe and meant for it to be a relaxing place to unwind and have some beach time after all the museums. In fact, it was exactly what we'd hoped for. You do, as other reviews point out, have to pay to use one of the private beaches as there are no public use beaches around, but we found the price quite reasonable for the three of us (2 adults and a child) at 16 euro for an entire day (comes with 2 chairs and an umbrella). The hotel itself doesn't rent beach space, but has a partnership who they can recommend. The hotel itself was clean, comfortable beds, and we found the breakfast to be fabulous. I'm not sure if things have changed since some of the more negative reviews, but there was a wide variety of fresh homemade pastries available, a good variety of fruit, meat, cheese, cereal, fresh juices, and even cappucino made to order. We found the front desk very helpful - I needed to print out some travel documents and they graciously did it for me! If we come back to this area, we will certainly stay here again. I found it better than we expected overall.
