Let me start by saying this is our second time staying at this hotel so I knew what to expect. If you are expecting a nice plush "Spa Resort" this is not the property for you, this is a historical hotel that needs a lot of $$ to restore to her old glory.
We stayed in the Athena Tower which was renovated in the last 3 years I'm told.
We had 2 queen beds, a large bathroom and a balcony overlooking the bay.
The room was very clean and spacious.
I booked the "all inclusive" package which included breakfast,dinner, alcoholic drink of the day, soft drinks coffee ect and a 25 minute spa treatment and use of all spa activities.
All inclusive breakfast we were told the first morning to help ourselves to the continental breakfast buffet. Fruit, cereal, toast, juice. This was disappointing because on our last stay they had a beautiful breakfast buffet and omelet station. We were told that this is now only on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
The second morning we were told our vouchers included the continental buffet plus anything off the menu with an $8.00 value. We wish we had been told that I on day one. :(
Dinner was very nice both nights we chose to eat off of the regular menu rather than the voucher menu. Not because we didn't like the choices but on the first night they offered 3 oz filet and 4 oz lobster for $16.95 our voucher was valued at $13.00 so we paid the difference.
The second night we ordered of the regular menu as well which was pasta made to order.
We did the 25 minute facial which was nice.
We did not use the facilities this year as we made plans off property.
Because I knew what to expect from the hotel it met my expectations but again this is not a luxury spa and resort.
