The hotel is modern with a smart minimalist style and is located in an old fort in an elevated position by the sea. The location is excellent as it is easy to walk to restaurants and places of interest. Be sure to book a tour of the Palicio inside the fort. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and the bed was comfortable.
However in other respects we were a little disappointed. The room faced a wall and was gloomy and unwelcoming; not helped by it being awkward to fully draw the curtains back.There is no bidet.
The breakfast was OK but did not have much choice. We tried to get afternoon tea but found that there is no lounge to relax in. When we queried this we were told the breakfast/ coffee shop was the lounge which would have meant sitting at tables. Although we could order tea they could not provide accompanying small sandwiches and cakes. After discussion over the phone with room service we ordered a hefty chicken sandwich in our room. Very nice but more suited to lunch than afternoon tea.
Overall we expected rather more in a so called Leading Hotel of the WorldMore
