My partner and I decided to come here for a 7 day break for my 40th Birthday, just to relax and get some sunshine. This is exactly what we achieved on this break.
There are pros and cons regarding this hotel and I'll start with the negatives.
Firstly, my partner e-mailed a month in advance to the hotel to explain that we were coming over to celebrate my 40th birthday, and asked if it could be made that little bit more special with a room upgrade or a room facing the sea. We were bitterly disappointed when she received a reply to say "for €16 extra 'per night' we could have a sea view. We decided against this as the holiday was expensive enough without forking out more, and we thought that the room would be ok anyway....big mistake. We arrived at the hotel, checked in, arrived at our room to discover that we were at the back, right above the waves crashing of the rocks, most people would find this therapeutic, but believe me, it was like a car crash every 5 seconds. We had to keep the windows closed as this was keeping us awake, but then again, so was the heat....we had no option to get use to this as the hotel was fully booked.
They advertise 'free WiFi'....far from it. You can't pick it up in the rooms, and if you want any connection, you have to sit at reception (still extremely slow).
Anyway, onto the positives. The reception staff, maids and catering staff could not have been any nicer. They all seem to love their jobs which makes you feel your in a decent hotel. The food at breakfast and dinner was vast and delicious. The sunbathing decks on all floors were fantastic.
All in all, a very clean hotel with great staff, lovely food and spacious rooms....just beware what room you end up in !!!
