This is a difficult review, because we chose this hotel due to the excellent reviews!
The pros - The hotel is in a great location, local to the beach, shops and the bus stops. The staff are very friendly and very keen to help and sort out any problems. We were given good advice about day trips and things to do.
The room although very basic was clean and there was plenty of storage space. The kitchenette had the usual utensils. but we mostly ate out.
The cons - we requested an upper floor, we also contacted the owners directly with our request, but on arrival we were given a room on the ground floor. We were told it was an upgrade, but it did not feel like it.
The room was overlooked from the street on one side and the pool on the other, so there was a lack of views and privacy. We kept the curtains drawn to save us being gawped at!
There also seemed to be a problem with damp rot on various door frames.
When going out first thing in the morning or when returning back after a day out, we could see the other guests eating, enjoying the sun and views on their balconies, which we could not do and really missed.
After reading the other reviews, I feel that we would have enjoyed a being in a different room.
So if you are lucky enough not to get the same room, you will have a great time!
