We paid 84 Euros per night for this hotel which included breakfast. Rooms were immaculate and a decent size. It had 2 rooms. One with an excellent shower and wash basin. The other was a toilet and 2 wash basins. All immaculate and clean. There was also plenty of wardrobe space. it was excellent value. We had a balcony overlooking tennis courts and amazing views.
The hotel had 3 pools. 1 indoor which was excellent and open late. The other 2 pools outside were not open although because the weather was good (April), people were still sun bathing around it.
Breakfast was adequate. All clean. One bad point was that we observed bread being put out the night before and left overnight. By then it was rock hard. zero out of 10 for that one. Staff were extremely friendly. Although we were told to close a sliding door to the outside next to us, which I didn't like. My wife was heavily pregnant and felt too hot, They were very apologetic but still didn't like being told not to do this.
Those are the positives.
My main negative which was an issue for me as I need internet to book other hotels on our travels, was the WIFI. When I connected to it, I was immediately presented with a message saying that my connection had been reduced to 256K due to over usage. Even though I hadn't used it. In fact, it was unusable. I had to use my iPhone instead which used a lot of data. In the evening, I went down to reception to mention the problem to which I was told that they had never had this issue before. I asked if they could do anything and they just said no. That is unacceptable.
Although there is a lounge area, don't expect to be able to buy food etc. It seems to only be open at certain times.
Overall I would say that it is a nice hotel which a lot of potential to be much better.
