My partner and I stayed here in March this year and the year before. Really nice, clean and the rooms are well appointed - We upgraded to a pool room on the ground floor which have larger balconies for sunbathing and are slightly more private than around the pool.
Breakfast was nice- typical continental- fresh fruit, yoghurts, croissants and cooked options. The hotel does have an evening menu but the restaurant was never open at this time so I cannot really comment on the food of an evening- although there is an amazing French style patisserie next door that is open till late.
Staff were ok, although the night porter was a bit abrasive when I had ran out of water in the middle of the night and went to reception to enquire as to whether they had any vending machines I could buy a bottle from - I got a curt "No! The tap water is fine!"- I didn't risk it. Everyone else I encountered was pleasant.
The old Town is a short walk (10 mins) from the hotel however be warned that the surface of the pavement is very slippery- especially on the downhill part- I would avoid wearing any high shoes with no grip. There is a "new" town which was basically a strip of bars and some souvenir shops- the old town is the better of the two- really rustic and quaint with plenty of shops and bars and restaurants- word of warning however there is a local nut-job we encountered on both times we were on holiday who asks for cigarettes from tourists- do not give him one as he won't leave you alone after that- he was always drunk in the town square and can be quite intimidating. Other than that the hotel and town in general is really nice. Definitely worth a visit.
