I wouldn't rate this hotel as a 4 star. It's very tired round the edges and needs a good clean and fresh lick of paint. The rooms are very tired and quite shabby and there is a constant coating of dust everywhere.
There's a general lack of attention to detail at this hotel. We arrived late after a delayed flight and coach transfer - the restaurant had closed and when asked if we could get something to eat were met with a shrug of the shoulders. No welcome drinks, no welcome from the rep and hungry tummies until breakfast the next morning.
The bathroom tiles are very slippery, I slipped in the shower and badly bruised my leg. The rooms don't get cleaned until at least lunchtime each day.
The pool at Sea Club is very noisy with building work going on at a building site next door. Men constantly pester you at the pool to buy a massage, or go diving and so on - the photographer that tickles your feet was the final straw for me! It seems that everyone is out to make a fast buck from you and it gets very irritating. That said if you are a plane spotter you'll be in your element - planes come low and right overhead every 15 minutes or so.
The food was quite good I thought with lunch and dinner having a good choice, breakfasts weren't great however and there was some repetition. The waiters work very hard though but are too eager to clear your tables - the second you've finished they clear away your plate, perhaps they have a shortage of them or something??
On our last day there was no curtesy room provided for showering at the end of the day and we had to be out of our room by 12 noon. There was a theme though and we weren't surprised to learn that we could pay extra to keep the room until 6pm. We were told to be ready to meet the coach for transfer to the airport at 17.55. It arrived at 18.30. No apology and no cheerios from the rep.
We wanted a week in the sun to relax, we got that, but with no extras or frills. We won't go back.
