Located a short transfer from the airport, typical hotel setup - check in, porterage were seam free, just leave passport at check in & collect later to avoid delay. We had 2nd floor room, choice of 2 lifts or stairs, clean room with side view inc free security box. Had a blackout blind behind curtains & it made a real difference when you lay in. Lounge Bar is open plan & extends to spacious balcony with sea views - we did not experience any queuing for drinks, you give your order & the waitress brings them over on a tray. You go down 1 level for Restaurant (stairs/lift) spacious settings with room to move & a romantic balcony for outside dining - giving a lovely start & end to the day. Hotel grounds & pool area are flat & well maintained - if you leave the boundary 'ensure' you have sensible footwear on - the paths are there, but uneven, missing slabs or too shiny causing slips/falls. Indoor pool simple but enough - clean towels provided at no cost (indoor pool only) - so don't lug your towel with you. The lift goes down to -3 level for rear access - you still encounter quite a few steps to get clear of the building - not too bad going out but tiring when you come back (a winding slope path has been provided) A Car Hire Rep has his own office/booth right in reception - very reputable 1 days car hire 50 euro with unlimited mileage, just remember your driving licence. A Shuttle Mini Bus service runs from reception - cheap regular service includes return - I highly recommend this as the local bus service is good but a long haul up a steep hill to get to the bus stop. If you're all-inclusive & staying out for the day, book a packed lunch with reception & collect it from the restaurant at breakfast - no charge & very nice. Entertainment 'very little' - a singer occupies one corner of the Piano Lounge & discreetly plays popular tunes from about 9pm. If you leave the back of the hotel you follow a pathway past a chapel, local boat service, simple bars/restaurants - nothing exceptional but worth a wander. The chapel chimes regularly but is tasteful & quite charming. A new hotel is under construction close by - we saw a couple of cranes, surprisingly little noise & not a hint of dust - so it gave us no stress at all.
