Don't expect a room with a view. My room had an enclosed balcony on the 3rd floor of an annexe to the main hotel. I had to stand on tip-toe to even see the swimming pool below. Too hot to sit on the balcony during the day due to the enclosed space and quite claustrophobic. The hotel seemed to be geared up to families with children, as the swimming pool area was heaving with young kids all splashing about in the pool and screaming and shouting (not ideal if you're looking for a quiet relaxing break). The bar / ice cream parlour / cafe was very basic set with outdoor table and chairs on a tiled floor. The reception is basic with a small leather sofa seating area. The dining room works on a buffet dinner basis, with a help-yourself salad bar, followed by waiter served main and sweet course. Any drinks ordered are added to your room bill. Breakfast is again buffet-style. Not a bad selection on display. Staff seemed quite helpful, but didn't fall over themselves. No carpeting throughout the hotel, just tiled flooring. Rooms are very basic with metal framed bunk beds and double beds. There was a tiny 7" wall-mounted TV in the room, right above the door, so not even conveniently placed to view (not that I bothered). The only saving grace for my room was a great shower pressure, so at least the showers were a pleasant experience. A short walk from the little local shops / restaurants / bar (don't expect much choice). A good 20 minute downhill walk to the lake side, and yes, you've guessed it, a steep uphill walk back up to the hotel (a killer in the summer heat). If you're out all day sight-seeing it's OK, but nothing much else to do here. Do be beware of the outdoor tiled areas when wet, they can get very slippery in rain.
