We had an excellent stay in this hotel although it could have been different. We read the reviews on Tripadvisor and also looked at the hotel's own website. 2 things were clear: 1. the hotel had been refurbished to what looked like a high standard and 2. People recommended upgrading to a deluxe room as the rooms tended to be small. So, we upgraded to a deluxe room with a front sea view and were reaaly looking forward to it. when we arrived, we were obviously in a room which had not been refurbished and were very disappointed - there was mould in the bathroom, the towel rail was falling off, the plug in the sink did not hold the water, the room was small and old fashioned and the balcony was only just big enough for the cheap plastic chairs but not really for your legs as well. The view however was stunning. And i cannot fault the service because as soon as we complained about our room we were moved to a beautiful suite with jacuzzi bath, four poster bed and large balcony - but i wonder why we were in the room in the first place and what would have happened if the suite had not been available. my advice would be to check that your room is as described on the website which i believe all but 2 are at the time of writing.
The roof terrace was fantastic, the pool lovely and we had many relaxing afternoons up here after exploring the local area in the mornings. The hotel is really well situated with fantastic views over the town but just 5 mins walk from the buses, boats and restaurants. We also enjoyed having out breakfast on the terrace each morning with fabulous views over the beach and the town. There was a good choice of local food as well as the usual egg options (although thesee were a bit hit and miss - hard boiled eggs when we asked for soft and scrambled eggs that were more like an overcooked omlette). Service was a bit hit and miss and depended on which staff were serving you but the views, ambience and local pastries and parma ham made up for any lack of finesse.
Overall, we had a really lovely week here and i would definitely recommend it - just make sure when you book that you get whatt you're ordering with the room
