location, location,location ... This hotel certainly has it. Just a 5 minute walk to the marina and beach front restaurants (this extends to 10 minutes in the evening due high heels)
Lovely pool area but not a lot of sun beds so get up at 5am to put your towel reserve on the ones you want.
Staff are very friendly and helpful especially when we had to move room 3 times due to no lockable patio doors... as we were on the ground floor it was a definite security issue. They upgraded our room to a suite as an apology which was great...Again no locks on the balcony doors but as we were 7 floors up we thought the chance of an abseiling burglar would be low. The fridge and air conditioning didn't work either but after 5 jugs of sangria we didn't even notice.
Great hotel if you're over the age of 50, I defiantly felt the youngest there (I'm a young slim 44 years old) so on the plus side I felt great in my bikini round the pool and I didn't have to worry about my husband eyeing up the ladies.
Breakfast buffet was a good standard which soaked up the previous nights 5 jugs of sangria...and all with a nice outdoor eating area.
Overall nice clean presented hotel near to all the bars and restaurants but far enough back not to be noisy .... Would I go again ... Yes for the price it fitted exactly what we needed.
