We arrived at the hotel in the afternoon. There were 8 of us(4 couples). The lady at the reception (curly haired) was very helpful when we arrived and throughout our stay. we payed for standard rooms, but we got see view rooms, 3 next to each other and one just on the other side of the corridor (that was my choice) for no extra charge. Like other reviews say upgrade from standard room to see view room is 10 euros/night (these are on the 1st or 2nd floors) or from standard room to superior is 20 euros/night or see view to superior is 10 euros/night (from 3rd- 7th floor, most of these rooms are refurbished). there are only a few rooms with no see view, 2 next to the reception are the worst! the rest is around the pool, which is not too bad.
We only payed for breakfast, which wasn`t great. The choice was very limited. Only 2 types of meat, processed ham and hardly cooked, warm bacon, white or brown sliced bread, pre-packed croissants and muffins, which were not fresh every day or some days there were no croissants at all. The toaster was more like a mini grill oven, which warmed and dried the bread, before actually toasting it. 3 days out of the 7 we ended up eating out or in our rooms to bring variety to our breakfast.
The cleaners are very efficient, but noisy as well, especially down the pool area, when they stacking the sunloungers and hosing down the pool area whilst talking to each other. This could be annoying for those who aren`t deep sleepers or for ground/ low level residents.
Overall we had a great time.The hotel is in a very good position and views are amazing. The sun goes down in front of you balcony which takes your breath and you can`t get enough of it.
