We were fortunate to get a first floor room overlooking the pool and restaurant (there are only two floors in each building). The food was good, if a little bizarre (beef with pineapple was weird). There's a pool table to while away the hours. The pool is very small.
The hotel seems to have a lot of tourists coming by for lunch as part of a coach tour but I guess they have to make their money somehow. Best to avoid those groups.
There's wifi in reception but it didn't work anywhere else. Staff were great.
For us, this was the last hotel in a 2-week trip and it was perfect as a sea-side location.
By the way, go to the beaches in the park - they are much better than the ones in the village.
