First time at this hotel, we are couple aged 69/67.
The location is absolutely fantastic, never had a better location.all rooms face the sea with balcony. fantastic waking up to blue sea & clean golden beach.
The rooms are a good size, kept very clean, fridge, safe, hairdryer (obtained from reception),
TV with 4 english channels, good size beds, reasonable bathroom
The decor of the hotel is a trifle dated but not unpleasant at all.Nice large & comfortable Lounge with bar & entertainment. The staff were very friendly & pleasant
We were B&B,breakfast was adequate. no need for half board as when you walk out the door of the hotel you are in the Old Town with very numerous bars, shops & restaurants
We did not bother with the strip as wandering about the small streets of the Old Town was a delight.
We found a restaurant offering the following as an example
Bread & butter& Pate
Choice from a selection of 10 quite decent mains (all with Rice,Chips & vegetables)
Half a bottle of reasonable wine or beer
all for less than 10 euro
excellent value, this was only one of many offering this sort of choice.
We also experienced some fine dining at very reasonable prices.
The only minor negative - no tea/coffee making facilities
We will have no hesitation in returning
