Spent a week here from 1 - 8 June and loved it. I was travelling as part of a group of 6; the hotel was able to give us all adjoining rooms which was a great start. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable; all of them had a small balcony overlooking the harbour and bay.
The hotel itself more than met my expectations...the huge reception/lobby was perfect for pre/after dinner drinks. All meals were served in the large restaurant which, whilst lacking any character, was well laid out and had pleasant views. The food was wonderful - a great selection, all beautifully prepared and presented and very tasty with a fantastic selection of salads at lunch and dinner each day.
With only one exception, everyone on the staff was lovely - very friendly, polite and helpful. Special mention to Ana at the pool bar and Greta at the champagne bar (off site but part of the complex), both of whom were fantastic.
I think this is the first year that the hotel has offered 'all inclusive' and there are a couple of tweaks to be made...having a mini-bar which isn't included is a bit confusing; maybe it could be stocked with drinks that ARE included within tariff? The lady at the lobby bar wasn't especially helpful with explaining what drinks were available and even poured a gin with coke when asked for rum!
No problem with getting sunbeds but parasols were a bit thin on the ground and I would imagine that both beds and parasols would be harder to get hold of when the season gets busy. However, the pool area and terrace were both perfect for relaxing.
Summary - if you are looking for a hotel steeped in character and local ambience, this isn't it. But it is a super, modern and chic hotel with lovely people in a fab location, would definitely recommend and go back.
