We stayed at this hotel for a week, great location, great food, nice rooms, modern bathroom, great base, lots of opportunity to explore or join tours, I would definitely stay here again, located on a busy street but noise wasn't bothersome.

Stayed here for a last minute break during September and have no complaints at all, hotel was clean and modern with good sized rooms and bathroom which had both a bath and shower with good pressure and hot water. Bed was comfortable and room was cleaned daily. Breakfast was european so no cooked option but was tasty all the same

Really good for a 3 star hotel. The location is only few minutes from the best places on the beach. There are many shops and restaurants just around the corner.
