Arrived late at the hotel and the staff couldn't be more helpful in showing us to our room and helping with luggage. They even ensured a snack was made available because we'd arrived so late. Stayed in a junior suite - rooms well decorated, clean and surprisingly - quite a few English speaking TV channels.....
Food was lovely, always fresh and lots of choice. Only downside - they were a bit slow on serving drinks - and prices were very similar to the UK - (although we found this all over Meloneras not just our hotel). Slightly strange thing about this hotel is that they didn't seem to sell any 'snack' type food for lunch apart from a ham/cheese toastie. Only other option was a full meal in the restaurant so we opted to eat out every day for lunch.
Location - very central and just a few minutes walk to lots of restaurants, bars and shops.
Pool areas were clean and towels were provided. The only thing to watch out for is the weekends...not sure if this is a destination weekend resort for those living in mainland Europe because the pool area became unbelievably busy Fri/Sat/Sun (as in we couldn't get a bed anywhere!....and yet it seemed to quieten right down in the early part of the week.
