I have just returned from this hotel after a 2 week stay. The hotel is extremely well presented but appearances can be deceptive. The beach front location of this hotel is excellent but unfortuantoely it goes down hill from there. Most rooms overlook the busy hotel car park which is extremely noisy and busy at all hours of the day and night. There are no rooms with sea or pool views
The food is extremely patchy and the restaurant is not large enough to accomodate all guests which does lead to long waits typically 30-40 minutes at peak times. After waiting some 30 minutes for an empty table we commenced our evening meal at 8.50 pm the restaurant closed at 9.00 pm at which time the lights were turned off food removed from the self service buffet to leave us eating in the dark.
Entertainment programme and staff do not speak English only Italian as were the majority of guests generally other nationalities are totally ignored. Booming Disco music plays all day by the pool, the hotel was extremely busy resulting in some English guests being moved to alternative accomodation on arrival due to overbooking. During our visit most English people were placed in basement rooms about 10ft from the car park resulting in many complaints many guests we spoke to having visited for the first or in some cases over many years have pledged never to return.
