Stayed at the hotel during one week in June 2014 with my family (2 adults, 2 teenagers). We had an apartment with two rooms on the ground floor,including a kitchen corner: one bedroom with a double bed and two bedsofas in the living room.
The apartment was very clean and felt fresh (hotel apparently renovated in 2012). There is a separate AC equipment in each room. Wifi access is free and at least in our apartment both the coverage and bandwidth was good - not anything you are used to with free Wifis. The terass was very small and could hardly fit 4 small chairs and a table.
Cleaning takes place every day and the level of cleaning is super - well done.
All purchases in the hotel area (including super market) are done with a value/smart card so you don't have to carry cash e.g. to the pool. Very handy - until you check out and have to pay the bill ;-)
The breakfast was OK and I guess most persons will find something to eat here. We only had one dinner at the hotel (Italian restaurant) and that was very good.
There are 2 swimming pools in the hotel, one for small children and a larger one for the others. The large pool was usually quite crowded especially since many swimmers had their floating equipment/toys in the pool. But being a hotel mainly targetting families I guess this is something you need to be prepared for.
The hotel has their own 'entertainment staff' trying to get the people involved in varies activities. There also seemed to be a special 'day care' type of service for smaller children.
The hotel is located 15-20 minutes walk from the old city/harbour where most of the commercial activities in the area takes place. There are also a few restaurants within 5-10 minutes from the hotel, we tried a few of them (e.g. Serena, Saffran, Red Lion) and were usually quite satisfied with what we got.
So to conclude, being a pessimistic Finn that normally needs something to complain about, this hotel gave me a very hard time - I simply can not really find anything to complain about here! If you're looking for a good, clean hotel, suitable for families and don't mind being slightly off-track from the commercial activities, I can warmly recommend this hotel.
