We have just come back from a 2 night break at this lovely hotel and it was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. The hotel is located right on the beach perfect for when the weather is warm, the rooms are very luxurious and the breakfast was very good. Cannot fault staff service and they also offer a shuttle...

I loved this hotel. It´s a beatiful building, with nice rooms and nice staff. However the location (right beside the train station) makes all their efforts worth half of it. If you don´t mind the noise, it´s a great hotel.

This hotel has everything. Views, location, quiet cool rooms, brill breakfasts and even better dinner (degustation plus bottle of wine for 29 euros). Check out the open air lido 10 mins walk away, plus the World Heritage bridge/ferry plus the promenade by the marina and beaches plus the tapas bars. We loved this hotel.
