I read some of the reviews on this hotel before we travelled.We stayed for 4 nights with A guided holiday firm.Regarding The staff ,they were ok.Yes the coffee is dire,as mentioned in previous reviews,we asked for cappuccinos every morning,sorted!The room we had(324) overlooked the pool,brilliant view,no verandah unfortunately ,to sit outside.Bring your own tea making facilities if you like your own cuppa!Clean towels every day,big plus from wife that.There is a small safe in the room for your passport and money,not big enough for an IPad or Laptop.Free Wifi,with a good signal.TV had Sky news,should you want to watch the box on Holliday.The room had an adjoining door,locked,but you could hear people in the other room,thankfully they were quiet.A very nice Dining room,where we had our
Continental breakfast,help yourself,though tea and coffee was brought to you by a waiter.All food ready cooked,scrambled egg ,boiled and fried,the usual cold meats,cereals,yogurts a bit runny,not a hit with the wife,otherwise food generally ok.Didnt dine in,ate out every night,village has plenty of good restaurants.there is the hill problem though,as mentioned in other reviews,very steep,even for a Welshman,used to hills!!!
You can get a bus,but the hotel does have a minibus which charges 20Euros one way,for 8 of us it worked out 2.5 Euros.There are minor things like worn out carpets in the Reception area,bar closed at 12 pm,and food during the daytime not being available at this time of year,as mentioned in previous reviews,not sure about the 4 star rating criteria on that?Anyway,summing up,not a bad hotel,could do better in some areas.
