We stayed for 5 nights B&B. At the time of booking we paid for a standard room but asked for a sea-view. We were allocated a side sea view room on the 6th floor (note the lift only goes to the 5th floor and we had to go up a small set of stairs). The room was great with a lovely view. The breakfast was fantastic, with a large selection of fruit, breads, meats, cheese, an egg station, and all the usual extras. Additionally there was champagne, a selection of cakes and a chocolate fountain! On the Thursday night there was a welcome reception for all guests with free champagne and tapas. The bar was also quite nice with reasonably priced wine - 3 Euro per glass and free snacks. The indoor pool is good however you need to wear a cap. We didn't use the hotel gym which is located in a separate building about 2 mins walk away. The spa was closed at the time of our stay. The hotel is ideally located right at the beach with private access from the hotel gardens, and a 5 min walk to nice restaurants in the old town. There is also a small car park at 12 Euros per day, however it would be busy in the summer. The hotel has excellent facilities and the staff were friendly and helpful.
