Room was lovely and clean and very comfortable. I would have enjoyed my stay based in this. However it needs to be made clear that the hotel is near a club that closes at 4:30 am. I currently can’t sleep and I have 3 more hours of club music to listen to and that has ruined my holiday somewhat.

The hotel is very central and has a lovely calm, serene feel to it. Our room was spacious, although a bit dark and the beds were not the comfiest. Our first night (Friday) was disturbed by the thumping bass of a club nearby. Thankfully, Friday seemed to be the loudest night. Breakfast was okay - good selection, but avoid the scrambled egg unless you like it dry. Staff were lovely, a real credit to the hotel.

Lovely hotel in a super handy central location. It was great until Friday night came and the nightclub across the road went from 8pm to 3am with thumping music. They have the door open and the music is so loud you can hear the lyrics and feel the bass from your bed. If you’re staying during the week it’s a great hotel and would recommend, but if you’re staying over a weekend forget it!

The rooms are generously size with good bedding and ensuite. The breakfast is a wide variety of cooked and fresh fruit and pastries. The hotel is in the centre of the shopping district and close to bus stops for airport shuttle and day tours. Walking distance to the church and harbour. A very relax hotel and well appointed rooms.

For the price paid, the room was too small. It was difficult to drop our luggage. The room was clean an stylish but had some quirks: power plugs hardly reachable under the tables. Just one small towel holder. A shower curtain that was pulled inside due to the steam instead instead of a shower door. No air vent in the bath so that all the steam stayed in the room. The room appeared a bit as if it originally were a single room. All that would have been acceptable if the price for the room were not that high!

The outside of the hotel is uninspiring but inside everything is good, Nice reception and bar area. The room we had was done to a very good standard, comfortable beds, good sleep etc. The fact breakfast was included was a big positive over other hotels in the area - breakfast buffet had a pretty good selection. Staff were friendly and helpful..
