The Hotel location is very beautiful, down a narrow road on a hillside, and that caused the first problem. The approach road was steep, narrow and downhill, with cars parked everywhere. We actually drove past the hotel as the hotel entrance and the only hotel sign had cars parked all across the front of it and so we couldn't see it. The road was too narrow to turn around so we had to try to reverse up the hill, meeting other cars coming down. Not a good start.
The reception is quite plain and bland, but the reception staff were always very friendly and help. The rooms are so very narrow that there is only a small gap to walk past the bed. The beds are the type with wooden corners that stick out past the mattress. This meant we kept walking into the corners and left us with many bruises on our shins for the rest of our holiday. The pillows were the worst that I've ever come across in any hotel.The bathrooms are small, pain and functional. The best rooms have a lovely balcony and sea view.
The biggest problem is the restaurant. I have to say the restaurant manager is a lovely lady who was always cheerful, helpful and efficient. However, the restaurant is just too small. The hotel consists of 3 different sections, which look as if they were built at different times. The restaurant may have been big enough when the hotel first opened, but it is not sufficient now. There are a few tables for two or four, but the majority of the tables are for six or eight. This is fine for the large coach tour groups who want to sit together, but not for a couple or small family. The tables are also so close together that you can't push the chair back to get out. This is a major problem when you're in the middle and the meal is always a buffet. To compound the small restaurant problem, dinner was only from 7pm to 9pm. Other Valamar hotels serve dinner until 9.30pm, which could help here. For breakfast there was always a queue and a long wait for eggs. During dinner there was often a long queue for the freshly prepared foods and pizzas. The dining room was always very busy and noisy, and was not at all an enjoyable experience.
The hotel is in a nice location with lovely views and a short walk from the sea and promenade. The pool area is quite nice, but not very big, and it only manages to cope because so many people prefer to go down to the sea to lie and swim.
Overall. i can't recommend this hotel, and i wouldn't go back.
