Decided to book this hotel as we stayed last year in the Royal opposite (sister hotel). Last year in the Royal there was hardly any entertainment but there seemed to be a lot going on in the Victoria, so we booked this hotel this year. Just come back today after 10 days and we were disapointed. First the good points, the rooms are spacious and the views were spectacular from the the 13th floor. Rooms were made up every day, clean towels but some days our cups and saucers were not washed and bins were not emptied. Food was good but certainly not as good as the Royal last year and considering that both hotels serve the same food i would say that standards have dropped. We ate well though, hake, sole, salmon, beef etc., but we found the choice better last year in the Royal. (We were told last year that the food is prepared in the Victoria and shipped across the road). The beginning of the week there was a menu displayed of what was for lunch and dinner so you could decide if you wanted to eat in or not, but this suddenly stopped midweek. The pool was small but it did have a waterfall which was put on occassionaly during the day. The pool was was closed and there was no music and no atmosphere so we decided to go out most of the day. On the one day that we were told the bar was going to be open we decided to spend the day at the pool and the bar opened for 20 minutes and closed again. It's not that we wanted alchol all day but it was a pain to get dressed to go inside the hotel up the lift to the bar every time u wanted a cold drink or coffee. There was no entertainment in the Victoria in the 10 days that we were there only spanish dancing across the road at the Royal which we watched most evenings off our balcony. So if you want a quiet holiday with reasonably good food (lots of fish) this is the hotel for you. But we wont be going back there again. Oh i almost forgot the beds are very hard and my partner ended up sleeping on the sofa bed as his back got so bad he ended up on strong painkillers in agony. The locaction of the hotel is excellent right by the old town 5 mins from the beach that's why we choose the both hotels.
