I must say that we enjoyed our stay, as always. It is a great location for experiencing the Old Town with a wide choice of local restaurants. The view from the room was great, overlooking the bay with large yachts coming and going. Always something of interest.
The staff and service are excellent and can't do enough for you.
Our room was one of the partially upgraded ones with some new furniture which was an improvement. However I do think the move to wood on the floor is a bad idea. The noise of people walking above vibrates through the room and made me very careful how I walked on our floor. It certainly is cleaner and easier kept but does nothing to dampen the noise.I suspect that the wood floor is laid directly onto the concrete. A noise insulation layer onto the concrete I am sure would make a difference.
My biggest concern is for the pool area. Although they have replaced some of the umbrellas and tables overall the area is poor. The cushions on the sunbeds can only be classed as disgusting, with some only marginally better than others. They are badly stained with water or sweat marks and bird droppings. Some of the older tables look as though they have never been cleaned and covered in grime. How you can be expected to put a drink or food on them I do not know. Fortunately for us we had a new umbrella and table and managed to get 2 towels each which allowed us to completely cover the cushions. If our garden furniture ever came anywhere near to this state, if it could not be cleaned it would be binned.
I know times are hard but there is excuse for dirt.
We will return for everything else this Hotel has to offer and hope that one day soon these issues can be corrected.
