I spent a couple of nights at the hotel as I was attending a conference in October, which is pretty
A pity the pool was under maintenance, but then again, the sea was still available for a swim. Just at the back of the hotel, you have a particular area for sunbathing and swimming. Dressing gowns and slippers were available in the room.
I didn't try the spa inside of the hotel either, so I can't comment on that. A colleague was quite surprised (in the positive way) of the gym-area, so I guess that was fine as well.
Breakfast times are from 7 till 11 and there's a wide variety in offered food. However, my 'english' breakfast never got completed and the same sausages did taste a wee bit different the day after. I didn't have other lunches or meals in the hotel, as there are plenty of restaurants in the area offering something for everyone.
The service was good as well, I only had to contact a few times the staff and they were happy to help me out.
Wifi was pretty stable as well.
There's a bus-stop nearby to the north if you want to go and visit Piran (close enough to go on foot as well) which is a free navette and there's another one nearby eastwards, from the public bus transport, if you want to go whichever direction.
Going further down to the south, there are some bicycle rentals, in case you'd want to cross the border with Croatia, which is less than 10 km away. I didn't find one really close to the hotel, but I guess that's just because it's off-season.
