This is our second visit to this hotel. Having read the reviews I was a bit worried about what to expect. I thought by the sound of some of the reviews that it had gone down hill but I need not have worried. There are some issues that need attention but on the whole it was still the same as two years ago.
The room was still the same although a little care worn but never the less clean and welcoming.
The bathroom is huge and the only complaint in this regard is that the shower tends to become a little slippery.
On the whole the hotel is a good place to stay in terms of location (opposite the beach with bus stop at the door) however it could be improved.
This is not a cheap place to stay and they could throw breakfast in. We only saw a few people use the breakfast facility and can only conclude that like us, everyone went down to the local cafe for a quater of the price.
The dinner menu is overpriced and once again we saw very few people in the restraurant at night.
Generally housekeeping was very good but we saw the same tray of food left outside someones room for two days. We also saw food left in the area near the lift on our floor for a few days. Why this was not removed I don't know because the ladies who did the rooms were very efficiant.
You need to stay on the 5th floor for a view of the beach.
Someone commented on the number of unruley teenagers in the pool on new years day. I wouldn't say unruley but I was concerned that there were no adults at all supervising these kids and some were very young indeed. Its all very well having a sign saying that the pool is not supervised but a staff member could have gone out and calmed things down a little.
We spent some nice time by the pool and wonder why there is no pool side service. Most large hotels offer this and it really would be nice to have a cold drink down there. There used to also be a bar near the pool area but this has dissapered and seemed to have been given over for childrens birthday parties. Nice idea but for guests who enjoyed a drink in the afternoon it is not so comfortable now.
The new bar at the front of the hotel is not too bad but as usual overpriced.
We will go back as overall the hotel is nice but we also noticed that it did not seem to have many guests and we wonder if this is a price thing.
Tip to management: Include breakfast in your price and have poolside service.
Must say that we found the staff on the reception area always pleasant and helpful and encouraging of our tentative french.
