We stayed at the hotel from 4th-11th September. We were given the room on top floor (as requested at the time of booking) but unfortunately pool view were all booked at the time, so got a room facing the car park. We haven't noticed the noise from outside as described by some reviewers? The hotel looks exactly as it does on the photos both inside and outside, so can't understand why people complaint about that. I think the rooms weren't at all as dated as some make it out to be. There is a wooden floor in the room which is a good start. Beds comfortable with extra pillows and blankets (not that we needed them) in the wardrobe. Towels changed everyday and cleaned (including the balcony). Reception staff very friendly.
The garden/pool area clean and well looked after the depth markings are present (somebody said they coudn't see them in previous review). Was never short of sun loungers.
The only reason I gave this hotel an Average rating is because of very poor breakfast variety (or even lack of variety). Everyday the same things:
Bacon, Scrambled Eggs, Frankfurtes/Chorizo Sausage, Beans, Mushrooms, Bread (white/brown) cob, croissants, sweet buns, milk, cereal, cheese, ham and believe it or not but in the country where 2,5kg bag of oranges costs 2 euros (!) they were serving tinned fruits (sometimes bananas). The food was always fresh though.
As for the previews review where somebody stated they had to pay 2 euro per mug of coffee - we drank coffee every morning and never had to pay for it, so don't know where that came from (we were also B&B) There was a machine for coffee, cappucino etc... was quite surprised there wasn't even sliced tomato...
If they improve their food selection it'd definitely be a very good hotel to visit.
Also no ants in the room but maybe that's because we were on top floor ?? don't know.
