But for the location, I wouldn`t rate the hotel "very good". The hotel is literally on the beach. I and my husband stayed in a suite with a direct sea view and we loved it. However, there`s still room for improvement. There was no extra pillow or a blanket available in the room, the minibar was understocked, the hotel directory - just a few pages printed with fingerprints of the previous guests, no tea/coffee making facilities. But the overall impression - really good. The living-room, the bedroom and the bathroom - spacious and clean and also nicely furnished, a comfortable bed and the view - fantastic!
Breakfast was a challenge. The guests have to wander in search for an available table. During our stay the hotel seemed to be full so the restaurant was pretty crowded. You are greeted at the entrance and asked for your room number and that`s the end of the service. After a few minutes of walking all over the restaurant (no luck, there was no a single table available), I asked the waitress at the entrance whether the guests could expect any help from the staff or the guests had to take care of themselves. I was told the latter. A five-star service? I don`t think so. Luckily, the restaurant manager (or somebody in charge of the place, I`m not sure) overheard the conversation and offered us coffee in the lobby and made sure there was a table available to have breakfast. Finally! The breakfast itself was fine with a good selection of food.
The cafe on the top floor was a nice experience. We couldn`t admire the view as it was already dark. We had dinner in a`la carte restaurant. The food was tasty (although the menu didn`t look very attractice to me when I had a look at it for the first time). In my opinion, the menu would be better if the chef included more local ingredients. Our waiter was just great - witty, well-trained, a proper person at a proper place. Room service doesn`t really exist. As we arrived very late at night, the only thing to eat we could count on was a bowl of probably leftovers(this is our impression only) made into a bowl of stew.
I would highly recommend the hotel spa. We both used it (body and facial treatments) and we both loved it. Booking your treatments in advance is a good idea. The staff is really helpful and professional.
In spite of the drawbacks, I would love to go back there.
