The good and the bad. First the good, the hotel itself is located on the waters edge. It has nice views of the sea and is set in a pine tree ara. Parking is ok but most of it is first come basis, parking is shared with other hotels from the same overall company. There is a lack of real parking so you have to park under pine trees, on dirt ect. The hotel is old, furnitures really have seen better days. A big issue with many people is that there are no air conditioners in the room although by opening the door you get a nice breeze from the ocean. There is an indoor pool and a small child depth pool outside. The beach area is only rocks along with a small area that the hotel made. There is no sand so do not expect it. Breakfast is good and has a nice mix. Hotel desk staff are friendly. Changing of towels is only once every 2 days. Elevator is about the size of a small broom closet so take the stairs. Location is overall not bad, ere is nice scuba diving of shelves in the area as well as alot of hotel sponsored water sports. Now the bad part. The security they employ at the entrance of the hotel road are incompetant to say the least. They will refuse you entrance if you do not have a car pass, this includes when you are trying to check in and do not have sucg pass. Only way to get past the guard is to leave your car outside (good luck finding close parking) and thenwalk to the hotel and check in, then walk back to your car with the pass and drive in. The guard will refuse to call the hotel to confirm you are a guest. Add this to the fact that there are no guarded parking for most of the area (none by this hotel) and e fact that the parking area is dimly lit places some hesitation on recommending this hotel, overall the stay was ok. Trip was an advanced trip to check area for diving with club but after hassles with entrance will find another more accessable place as leaving thousands of euro of gear unattended in a car just to walk to hotel to get a pass does not appeal to my club
