Stayed for 7 nights, 7th to 14th April 2010.
The best part was the staff, very friendly, cheerful, and helpful, can't fault them.
The bed was good, the bedroom was a good size, and bathroom 'compact' but good, except for smell of drains, and you should not put toilet paper down the toilet. Primitive, or what?
We also had a balcony, with what a UK hotel would call 'a sea view'. (This hotel does not describe it as such). You could catch glimpses of the sea through the trees between the buildings.
There was a reasonable choice of food for breakfast but, unfortunately, the 'hot' food was, at best, luke warm. However there was plenty of it.
Our room was on the top floor (4th), at the front of the hotel, overlooking a main road. Traffic noise was intrusive, especially when the refuse lorry came round at 3am. To be fair, we live in a very quiet village, because of that we were perhaps more aware of traffic noise that we would have been if we lived in a town.
The worst noise came from inside the hotel. The room door could be made of cardboard for all the soundproofing it offered. I'm pretty sure it's not a fire rated door. It let in the sound of people just walking and talking.
Again, we may be more sensitive to the noise due to the quiet location in which we live.
Parking in the area is difficult.
Despite what I read in some write ups, the hotel does not have a car park.
The advertised hotel restaurant was not open, but there is plenty of choice within a very short walk (five minutes)
There are computers giving internet access costing one Euro for 20 minutes.
Also wireless access, I think there is a small charge for this, but I'm not sure.
Would I stay here again? Probably not.
