First of all this is a good hotel! Yes, if you read the reviews there are negatives but it depends when you go and what you are expecting. The rooms are small but not cramped and who wants to be indoors all day? The beach is crowed and the sun loungers are so close you cannot put two feet between them but the beach is not owned by the hotel so anyone can turn up......and they do. Sunloungers on the beach cost Kn40 each. The pool is really good and well laid out but you have to be down by 8.00am to get a towel to reserve your sunlounger. Believe me when I say that there is a queue of about 5-8 people each day at 8.ooam! The staff are courteous and smile and there are a lot of them so things get down quite quickly. The hotel is in a great location with only a 10 minute stroll to the port which is really pretty. If you want peace and tranquility hire a boat and hop to another island close by. The "Bonj le Bains" Spa next door to the hotel sells 2 sunloungers + umbrella for Kn 600 a day. Yes, that's right......nearly €83 a day!
Food is mostly good but try to find the Marinero Restaurant tucked up and behind the main port area. Really good simple fish restaurant with decent prices. No big menu but what they do they do well. There was always a queue by 8.30pm.
Do NOT take a day trip on the Vagabondo Boat to Bol/Bric as puched by the holiday rep. They said it would take 90 minutes and it took over 2 hours. We were shoe-horned into a boat and packed like sardines. I had to stand for most of the way. When we got there we found 1,000's of other people packing the beach. Yes, we got lunch but at Kn 250 that's a very expensive ferry with lunch.
