I wouldnt really describe this as being a hotel, rather just a building with rooms, all facilities were available for use at the sister hotel, california, which was about 30 seconds walk away.
the Polana was very clean and rooms were fitted with air conditioning and tv's, rooms were cleaned and towels changed every day.
The Polana was in an ideal location, the square being 2 minutes away in one direction, and the beach about 4minutes in the opposite direction, which by the way is a lovely beach.
the downfalls of the Polana were that it was very noisy into the early hours of the morning due to people coming in from their night out, and the corridors are all tiled so the whole building echoes.
Also the lift is like something from fawlty towers, we had to go up the first flight to get to it, and we were on the second floor, but when we pressed floor 2 in the lfit. we ended up on what was floor 2 and a half, so had to walk down a flight to get to second floor. very bizarre.
Our room was at the back and had a lovely patio area, I feel the rooms at the front may have been quite noisy due to overlooking the busy main street, these rooms also had a balcony but were very narrow so you wouldnt be able to sit out.
T pool in Hotel California was quite small nice and clean, not alot of sunbeds however for sunbathing.
the dining area was also very nice, and gave the choice of sitting inside or out.
