Having stayed at this hotel three previous times we found that nothing had changed, still like living in a time warp which is what we hoped for. We had a room on the third floor, a large room with a good view. Clean except for the carpets which were stained and in need of a clean as was the case with the corridor lots of water stains with a damp smell.
The hotel although not changed gives you the feeling that it is fast becoming a transit hotel catering for the one night stoppers.
The staff are great we found the concierge extremely helpful, not keen on the maids that follow you to your room just to remind me it is their day off when you leave this has happened on all our stays (you will get your tip!!!!).
The small bar that is tucked away on the side does the best mojito's in the hotel and has an wonderful 30's feel to it.
Would we go back again, yes we would just to walk down to look at the sea and people watch.
One tip to watch. Check the contents of you fridge mini bar against the inventory, we placed our own bottles of water in to cool upon leaving the hotel we were asked to pay for our own water, then write and sign a letter to say we had not used theirs. As we stayed there at the start and end of holiday this happened both times. I do not know if this is a scam or has happened to other guests but we refused to pay for what we did not use. Some other guests told us they just pay as can not be bothered to argue, just beware of this.
