We stayed her for 5 nights while visiting the surrounding area. The hotel staff were warm and welcoming and spoke a number of languages well.
Our twin room overlooked the pool area and had a good size balcony with room for 2 chairs (some were smaller) the room was spacious with lots of wardrobe space and lots of hangers. Everything was spotlessly clean. There is a good size fridge with the usual mini bar items but not too full so there was room to store our own purchases. The beds were quite comfortable but the pillows a little thin.
A continental breakfast was included in the price of the room the choice was not extensive but everything was fresh and tasty. We did not eat any other meals in the hotel as we were out most days until late.
We spent an afternoon by the pool which is very present with a large Jacuzzi the sun beds are comfortable they are the type with the tilting shades to keep the sun off your head if required. The hotel does request that people using the pool are quiet between 2 and 4 but no one found this a problem. There were some children in the pool and their parents reminded them to be quirt occasionally if they got a little loud but no one minded them making some noise and talking quietly to the person next to you seamed perfectly acceptable.
The hotel is very security conscious there are lots of security cameras around the perimeter of the building and a security person on the desk when we arrived back late on a couple of evenings. There is free parking and the car park gate is closed overnight. Guests are encouraged to close their role up shutters overnight (and when out) to discourage intruders. The shutters can be a little noisy when rolled up in the mooring and due to the nature of the building, and in common with most hotels, you can hear the sounds of the pluming in the surrounding rooms.
There is free wi-fi but do be aware that it is a bit of a faff! You have to re-enter the user name and password frequently as the connection drop every time the phone/ ipad etc goes into standby mode so you can be looking something up on Google earth over the Wi-Fi go to get a drink and resume having to reactivate the ipad screen as it has gone into standby and not realise it is no longer using the WI-Fi but data roaming (My own fault for not switching off the roaming feature but one to be aware of)
The hotel is situated on the hill about 15 minutes walk from the centre of town. We found this to be very pleasant rather than be in the more constricted space of the town centre. The short walk past the various Spars is delightful and the up hill return journey is not too arduous and can be done mostly in the shade.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt it was great value for money.
