We arrived at midnight after a long drive - and got a room where the cleaning had been abandoned in the midst of the process. That should not have happened. But, no problem. Within minutes, we got a clean room with the same stunning view.
True, the furniture in that part of the hotel has seen better days. (We were in the older, five-storey building on the left-hand side if you stand on the beach.) They are renovating in stages. But with such a view, a shared balcony to sit on, and miles of sandy beach right in front of the hotel, I can wait for the new furniture!
Esp. since food at the hotel restaurants is very good indeed (they have a grill bar at the pool, a normal restaurant, and a refined one which is truly excellent), and the staff is very friendly throughout.
