Stayed at the hotel in July, 2012.
Stayed at the hotel for 10 days with my girlfriend. It has different quality rooms. We got the most basic one on the first floor, the window looked on some alley that beachgoers and delivery people used. There are also rooms with poolside view. Those on the main floor, have little porches with tables and chairs, though we didn`t like those as other guests were passing by your drying clothes and towels. The best rooms are those on the first floor with view on the pool and the garden.
We had to wait a few hours until our room was ready, rented a safe next to the reception for 2euros/per day.
Our room was basic, double bed, TV (didn`t watch it at all), free AC. Had a problem with the AC, it worked but blew only warm air. I asked repeatedly to fix it. At first they gave us a spare keycard so we could run it even when we were not in the room, it didn`t help. Complained again, took them a few hours and some troubleshooting but they fixed it. Also, we got to keep the extra keycard, which was a nice bonus.
The room wasn`t exactly dirty but left much to be desired. They mopped the tiles every day but it was never spotless. The bathroom was the same, the sink and the toilet were clean, only the bathtub was dirty. As I said, the room wasn`t filthy but some extra or more detailed cleaning wouldn`t hurt.
The garden is very nice, a spot of green is a nice sight in this parched landscape.
The pool is quite big for the hotel this size, has a separate, shallow end for children. The sun shines on it the whole day so it`s warm. The water is clean, they maintain it on a daily basis.
The beach is next to the hotel restaurant. Jokingly we said that if you trip on the sidewalk, you fall into the sea. For hotel guests they give free sunbeads and shades. The water is nice and clean, with small gravel. Hotel staff deliver food and refreshments to the beach if your order some.
The food was excellent. For breakfast, eggs, omelet, beans, bacon, honey, marmalade, wide variety of salads, cold meats, cheese, tea, coffee, etc. For dinner we always had soups, at least two main dishes, with different salads and garnishing, fries, sweets, fruits, etc.
The hotel has minor issues with cleanliness but the location is unbeatable. On one side is the sea, on the other side is Bar Street. The dolmus (local bus) stops in front of the hotel. Bar Street can be noisy at nigh times but it quiets down around 2AM. Had no problems sleeping with the windows closed.
I would say, Baba hotel is a nice place to stay, good value for your money, mainly for the younger generation.
