Very dissappointed with this hotel but its saving grace was the great location and the fantastic room if you happened to be at the front of the builing. Our room was on the top floor so great view but no balcony and we had paid additional for the sea view. The room was very small and very basic. The bathroom was a decent size but the shower had no real water pressure. The lighting was poor in both rooms. The whole hotel is very dated and needs some refurbishment. Although not dirty it could not be described as clean! The breakfast room was on the floor below and was very noisy from first thing when they are setting up. The coffee machine beeps constently so no chance of a lie. The breakfast has very basic choices although there is plenty to eat although i would not choose to pay if it was an optional extra. The downside to the great location is the noise, it is very noisy and being higher up did alleviate this a little. There are lots of local amenities, an alladins cave of a mini market just up the side street next to the hotel. Fresco's directly across the road is a fantastic place to eat and go for a drink, the staff are very friendly and helpful and there is quite an extensive menu and everything we tried was excellent.
The roof terrace and pool we used but to be fair there isn't room for more than a dozen max but it was mainly quiet whilst we were there and it caught the sun most of the day. There are bus stops right outside so you can go explore and visit other areas and the fee is minimal for all day travel. Forgot to say there is a hairdryer in the room which mine worked perfecly well and a tv with remote, the only thing that would have been nice would have been a kettle to make a drink. The air conditioning unit worked ok althought did at times drip water everywhere but I couldn't have managed without it as you need the window shut on a night to try and keep the nsoie level down. All in all the holiday is what you make it but for what we paid I was very disappointed with the quality of establishment.
