The drive in to the hotel is unimposing, but then you see a fine fountain and, looking left, there is an open tiled garden path towards the hotel entrance. Reception area fairly standard but, just a few steps up, you find a lovely modern pool area with plenty of sun beds framed against a backdrop of cliffs, thus giving rise to expectations. Then you make your way to your room and your spirit drops - worn carpets in the passages, old fashioned furniture in the moderately sized rooms (plus for a modern TV) and the feeling of a hotel in need of a face-lift. But the 'face-lift' seems to have been saved for the lounge and restaurant area a sprial stairway down. Comfortable lounge and restuarant area in a sort of art deco style with a fantastic flower arrangement as a focal feature - warm and welcoming.
Food arrangemnets a bit strange with guests choosing a numbered table for the entire stay - breakfast with lots of sweet cakes and not much variety - but you can get by. Buffet dinnner on the first evening was very satisfying but then during the meal the hotel wanted stayng guests to fill in a form to choose between a variety of dishes for the next evening and again that evening for the following evening - and so on. Seems to confuse the personnell as to which guest wants what!! We felt it would have been better with either a buffet type evening meal or a set menu. Wines a bit pricy but a good selection.
Since we arrived at this hotel after experiencing a disappointing hotel in Rome and expected much the same it, on the whole, turned out to be a pleasant surprise!
