Having booked for the Fiesta Garden Beach we were somewhat surprised to hear at the welcome meeting the following morning that we were actually in the Athenee Palace, we had arrived at 1030pm the previous evening and really hadnt noticed, but we were reassured by our rep. that this was indeed an upgrade so thought we must have been lucky! At this point we had only had breakfast which though not brilliant was acceptable. That evening dinner was nothing better than a mediocre cafeteiria very noisy and the food was poor, the staff were not interested in their english residents, italians seemed to be looked after much better. As for our room, it was very spacious with a very large bed but it was in the annexe of the hotel on the ground floor, we had looked forward to time on a balcony, we did have a terrace which overlooked the laundry and the car park not a nice place to sit, however the fact that we had a lot of foliage outside meant that we were infested with mossies, there was a plug in thing in the room but this had no effect, after a complaint to the indifferent reception staff they said they would spray the room but that only lasted one day and they suggested we bought something from the town, 25mins away on the shuttle bus costing 5euros return, we had already bought various soothing gels thank goodness but felt that spraying the room had to be the hotels duty, however we did not open the patio doors at all, though the maids did whilst cleaning in the morning which let them in, we spent the evening before goig to bed killing as many as possible but still waking in the morning to more bites, my advice is to request a room in the main hotel if this is not possible dont accept the annexe. As far as cleanliness is concerned I cannot in all honesty fault this, but as the hotel is in a remote area where it is impossible to obtain food anywhere locally there is little choice but to eat at the hotel, as a fellow guest said, dinner is to be endured not enjoyed. We didnt choose this hotel so had not read any reviews, I have now, and would not have chosen it, unfortunately we did not have the luxury of choosing!.
