My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two weeks commencing the 18th November 2006.
Our allocated room was fantastic, overlooking both the old and the new pool with distant views towards the sea, it was double room with ensuite bathroom, consisting of bath with shower over, toilet and wash hand basin, nicely finished and of a good size.
The room was nicely furnished with a television showing limited English channel, telephone, limited wardrobe space and air conditioned.
There was a good sized balcony with good views.
Rooms kept clean on a daily basis.
There was no tea or coffee facilities in the room, we did notice that the hotel charged extra for this.
The hotel itself was kept clean under the watchful eye of the owner and his daughter, who we found to be very helpful.
Two swimming pools kept clean and they ...
looked very inviting but the water was very cold, the area around the pools was also kept very clean.Read More
Very nice gardens kept to a high standard.
The indoor pool and fitness centre on the lower ground floor was also excellent and properly maintained.
The reception area was nice and again kept clean and the receptionists very helpful.
There was only entertainment on one night per week, you could not really call it entertainment, there was two men playing local instruments in the bar, so not very exciting.
The hotel let itself down with its restaurant, the breakfasts were poor, the main reason for saying this is that the fried eggs offered were discoloured and hard, one day fried eggs the next scrambled eggs, with this was over cooked streaky bacon, German sausages and baked beans, so not very exciting and the presentation of the food was poor.
The evening meal was of the same standard, very poor, as the majority of the meat selection was cooked in various sauces, even roast chicken had been roasted and then placed in a sauce, the hotel boasted they catered for vegetarians but this was non existant unless you liked \'cabbage flan\', when you complain there answer was \'well there is the salad\' !!
With the exception of the meals, we enjoyed our two weeks at this hotel, maybe we were in a quiet period and during the height of the season the meals might improve.
Get your hire car over the internet before leaving the UK, we only paid 8 English pounds per day which was fantastic, this included delivery to the hotel and collection, no other extras.
