I arrived at the hotel on the 5th of October 2013 with a group of 25 German tourists. As the bus could not drive to the hotel entrance we had to walk up a steep slope with our luggage which was not so easy for the elderly members of the group. I found my double room to be extremely clean and the bathroom and shower were spotless and it looked as if the room had recently been renovated. I asked the members of the group if they agreed and they were all happy with their rooms. We had half board and the evening meal was a typical tourist group meal, nothing special. There was no drinks price list in the restaurant so most of us drank draught beer after a long jorney. Before the meal we tasted the red, rose and white wine which we were told costed 10 euros a bottle which was quite reasonable. The next evening I requested a drinks list and we were shocked to find that a medium sized glass of beer cost 6 euros!! Needless to say that most of the group drank wine the following evenings. Later many of the group were given different types of wine without being informed that this was more expensive than the original 10 euros which they only found out when presented with the bill before leaving. The staff in the restaurant were very friendly and I was surprised at their very limited ability in English and German, in fact I was asked at the reception to translate for them. The cold breakfast buffet was very limited and was the same every morning for 6 days and consisted of baguettes, cheese, pressed ham and smoked ham occasionally. The bread was from a day before and when this was eaten then fresh bread was given. Breakfast was a flop and the evening meals were edible without being anything special. In the corridor near the reception which was badly lit was a step which several guests stumbled over and a elderly lady fell and badly cut her head and had to be admitted to the hospital and she was lucky to get away with just 3 stitches. The lady at the reception (Doreena) could not have been more helpful and arranged to have her transported back to the hotel from the hospital. The area around the hotel at this time was very limited to evening activities as it was low season and the hotel had a very small, colorless room to sit in and most of the guests retired to their rooms after the evening meal. My opinion is that the hotel made no extra effort to make the guests welcome and at 65 euros per person for half board in the off seson they could offer more. In fact I never did find out if they had a manager or not. It is a typical tourist hotel with a quick turnover of guest and is good for 2 or 3 nights.
