We took the bed + breakfast option. It was early evening when we first turned up and we were told that the restaurant would be 25 Euro pp + drinks. I see from other reviews that half-board is hardly more expensive than breakfast only, so go for that option if you want to eat there.
There is a perfectly good selection of restaurants across the bridge on the right and we went for that option instead. Digressing, the best restaurants we tried were one on the corner opposite Pub Number Two and the Indian on the the first floor opposite the tiny supermarket.
Breakfast is a buffet with a decent choice, some cold and some warm.
They have parking space for around 12 cars underneath, Luckily there were only around 10 cars using them during our stay.
When booking the room I decided not to pay extra for the sea view but they put us on that side anyway and - as others have said - it gets a bit loud (traffic). Sleeping with the window open meant a fairly strong wind blowing in throughout the night, we also caught some when someone smoked outside or on their balcony. Occasional Mosquitos, hopefully none were carrying Dengue fever. The a/c is definitely an alternative, very quiet.
There is live music on the ground floor until 22:00 most nights so you might want to avoid the first floor if - for example - you have kids.
We also heard neighbouring rooms rather better than we would have wished.
There are two pools outside, one is in a kind of alcove and you need a bathing cap (provided?) to use that. We saw a fitness room.
The city center is 1.5 - 2km but we walked that a couple of times.
