We followed the prior excellent comments and booked a room with a sea view. The hotel has been beautifully refurbished with interesting different rooms and a lovely welcome from everybody, and I mean everybody, we came across during our 4-night stay. We added the breakfast option, which was worth the extra. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean apart from the tiniest bit of mould...but throw open the shutters and a view of blue Mediterranean over the rooftops of a few bungalows greets you. The only think we couldn't get was a TV English channel, but, although we were not sure that it was just our unit, we were easily able to miss the joys (??) of BBC World for a short time.
We used the location to tour up and down the coast and the nightlife/restaurant evening choice in the marina 5 minutes' walk away was more than enough for us. The parking through the electric gate (immediately next to the hotel) was convenient and very secure. The staff would fetch you anything you needed from the bar or snackwise at any time and the jacuzzi was a perfect substitute for a full pool.
This deserves to be classed as double its existing rating - it is certainly quality, not quantity. Our unreserved thanks to the owners and their team.
