We recently returned from a weeks honeymoon at the Napa Mermaid.
As a honeymoon couple I didn't feel like we received any special treatment and were treated like any other guest. On arriving we were given a small room on the 2nd floor overlooking the parking lot with a side sea view which was not great, I immediately went down to reception and told them it was our honeymoon (showed our marriage certificate and emailed prior to arriving) and requested if there was anything better available and was given a 4th floor room overlooking the pool area which was a nicer view although exactly the same rooms size and configuration. While we appreciate them providing us with another room I feel that because the hotel appeared less than half full there were far nicer empty rooms on the front etc. that they could have given us for our special occasion. We were not looking for a freebie but considering it was out of season and the hotel was pretty empty I don't feel they would have lost anything by upgrading us to a better room.
Overall the hotel is very nice with a few minor issues. Here is a summary of the good and bad points.
Stylish design hotel, newly renovated and contemporary feel, also very clean.
Staff are very friendly and professional, especially Antoni around the pool, always smiling and happy to chat and the restaurant and bar staff were great.
Location is good, 15-20 min walk in to main town and the square.
Nice beach across the road although be advised that there is a busy road in front of the hotel which didn't really affect us but you will hear the odd truck passing by whilst laying around the pool.
Plenty of sun loungers available around the pool.
Great cocktails in the bar.
corridors can be very noisy late at night (around 3:30am) we got woken up on 2 nights by drunk people shouting at the top of their voices. Soundproofing of the rooms could definately be improved. Although this is more down to inconsiderate rude people and not the hotel.
No porter to take us or our bags to our room, we arrived around 8pm which I didn't think was late and we had to take our own bags.
The food while not bad was average in our opinion, the breakfast was the same everyday; lacked choice, no omelette station or eggs to order and bacon and sausages (actually frankfurters) poor quality.
Dinner was also average, again no freshly prepared dishes ie grill station and did get repetitive. While we are not huge fans of buffets I felt that we have had better elsewhere.
In conclusion, depending on the price you pay this is overall a lovely hotel with all the amenities one would desire and we believe that the 4 star rating is accurate.
