I must have been reading the wrong reviews or went to the wrong hotel, although the hotel was clean and most of the staff very helpful there are a lot of minor things that build up to spoil a holiday.
The rooms have 2 dining chairs in the bedroom to sit on ,not the most comfortable to sit and read, there are no hooks in the bathroom to hang your clothes on when you go for a shower.
No drawers in the room only open shelves, meaning that if the cleaner swept the floor any dust in the air went on the clothes.
I asked at reception where the nearest Taxi rank was and THE RECEPTIONIST SAID SHE WOULD RING FOR ONE AS THNERE WAS NO EXTRA CHARGHE TO PICK US UP ,HOWEVER WHEN WE REACHED OUR DROP OFF POINT THE DRIVER ADDED 1.20 EURO AS A CHARGE FOR COMING TO THE HOTEL HE SAID IT WAS STANDARD PRACTICE AND ALL HOTELS KNEW THIS.
On querying with the hotel on our return they admitted that it was correct but also let slip that they get a commission for every taxi booked .so they lie to make extra money.
The entertainment usually started at about 10.00pm and was not impressive at all.
A 3 star hotel that needs a lot of improvement it is no wonder no British tour operators will go there.
The food was only just passible I do not understand from what we were offered how people can say how great it is..
We had 2 days of sun and 5 of cold and cloudy including thunder, lightning ,and rain making it cold especially in the rooms ,but when I asked about using the heating part of the air con I was told it was summer and 16 degrees was not cold.
