Very good hotel with some rooms having an excellent view of the sea and marina. On arrival l was allocated to the 7th floor which had the aforementioned great view however l was anxious about the railing n the balcony as it was not very robust and with a lively young son with me , l was concerned about safety. I explained my concerns with staff who allocated me a room on the first floor which overlooked the pool. Whilst it lacked the view of the higher floor, l felt much better. The room was spotlessand cleaned everyday. Towels for the pool were available every day as well. One downfall was caused by most residents feeling the need to put towels down on sun loungers around the pool and then not being seen for hours on end. The management issued letters to all residents advising against this sort of conduct but in reality very little changed. In essence if you want a sun lounger around the pool you will need to move quickly in the morning.
