The hotel was clean and the rooms were a good size however the towels were not changed very often. We were kept a wake a number of times during our stay by dogs barking throughout the night. Not just one but a number.
We believed that we had booked our holiday direct with the hotel and paid well in advance. However when we arrived we were asked to pay again as we had apparently booked with a agency called 'Strawberry World' who had just gone into administration. According to locals they are now trading under the name of Lido tours. We suggest if you book very carefully if you book on the internet as we were convinced we had accessed the hotel site.
