I started off in one of the 'green rooms' which was probably the worst hotel room I've ever seen, dark, depressing ....I mean really depressing !!! There's absolutely NO lighting and the bulbs are 10watt I believe.
I quickly upgraded to a better room ( that wasn't green) with a sea view and balcony. Although it was better the lights were still dim and I got the engineer to smuggle me 2 brighter bulbs ....oh and the engineers became my friends as ..nothing worked!!!
The phone was faulty, the bar area with kettle, fridge etc did not work at all and the kettle was hardwired so could not be replaced.
The lights in the bathroom kept flickering on and off, I think all in all electrics were faulty.
The curtains had massive stains on them or maybe fade marks but looked atrocious, the balcony was fllthy and all the pots etc, chipped, I found quite a few things down the side of the outside sofa.. But no money unfortunately.
The restaurant Cecconis was excellent and the bar area too. The beach staff really welcoming and great service but I think the restaurant is the star of this show as it's patrons seem to get better service over the hotel guests. So a restaurant with rooms....?
The spa area was lovely and my massage was good.
If they refurbished the rooms I'd probably stay here a couple of times a year however I think the restaurant needs to be moved as you really feel like it's the most important part of the hotel, not the guests.
Also the management were a little stingy in compensating me for all the problems I had.
