The location is good and there is a Beautiful little secret beach only a few minutes walk away . The staff is also friendly, But there is a lack of management and things are kind of "halfays" .
The rooms are huge, but the beds are very hard and the cleaning is far from perfection . Also there is a lac of toiletries and equipment ; bathrobes , tea boiler etc .
So what I really need to highlight ; the breakfast . It is right out horrible !! Forget about any cappuccino or fancy tea ! I have been at hotels al over the world , but never experienced anything more disappointing. In true words these were the only(!) options for breakfast : White bread for sure not newly baked , one sort of local sweat cheese, one sort of salami, rice with beans , some tomatoes and cucumbers, 2 types of corn flakes , drinking yogurt , 3 sorts of fruit , hard boiled eggs ( so hard boiled they are black) and some dry , old looking sausages . Except from that one could get eggs, but forget about anything els than ham or cheese in your omelet . Oh by the way I forgot to say . One cannot get water and only juice was orange juice tasting like soda.
For a 4,5 star hotel this is ridiculous . Also the way it was presented was tragical and un tempting .
We ended up eating nothing but fruit !
This hotel has potential , but for now it's very (!) far from perfect .
