Very disappointed with our stay, but saying that our room was very clean with a very comfy bed. Decorations were good also.up to now all goin well!! Next morning down for breakfast, the view out to sea beautiful! Waited at least 10 mins before any staff came near to see what we wanted, went for cereal-no bowls! Went for orange juice- no glasses! Waited again , in the end my husband went looking in various places for some and still no one helped him! Finally a waitress came to see what we wanted to eat and must have waited another 30 mins for our breakfast, when it came it really wasn't worth the wait unfortunately. We did have a word with the hotel owner who was most apologetic but in my opinion he should be training his staff better. Smooth running of an establishment starts at the top.
