There was work going on whilst we were there but we knew about this before we booked. Noise was limited to 9 - 5 although we didn't hear anything until our last couple of days.
The weather was the worst we had ever seen but the staff were so good they made our holiday.
Food was fantastic with a large selection & as much you wanted. Alfred, Martin, Kevin & Joe behind the bar are real Gentlemen. Try one of their cocktails then sit down. Phew!
There is now a new pool which is onthe 9th floor & shared with the Palace Hotel which is connected.
Work had started on a new Spa which should now be completed. Work was also supposed to done on an outside seating area with access from the side of the bar.
Wih a little touching up this hotel could be a 5 star.

Breakfast was in my opinion adequate, however I have larger selections in Spanish 3 star hotels. Nevertheless friendly waiting staff and as said reasonable breakfast on offer....hot and cold.
Suite was cleaned daily and very nicely kept...(although perhaps the net curtains could have done with a wash)
This hotel turned out to be a great buy for us - relaxing bar if needed (until 1am) and nice terrace/pool / sun area on top floor.
Travel operator: self arranged
Our rooms were cleaned every day as you would expect. Towels (lovely and soft) changed daily. Beds are twin but more like 3/4 than single and we had clean sheets EVERY day. The TV was not working upon arrival but within 2 days every room in the hotel had new large TV sets. You could even check you bar bill on TV. We (mom and I) had a room each and requested the top floor (7th) so we would have a better view.
There is a giant building project at the rear of the hotel, not much noise but plenty of dust.
Roof top pool area on the 7th floor is good and clean as is the upper roof terrace. No shortage of sun space.
Waiter service in the bar and a pot of nuts or crisps (as one would expect). All staff are very friendly.
Internet room @ 50c per 15min.
Food is plentiful and you can have as much as you can eat. eg. Breakfast:- 2 hard cheeses, mini goat cheese, big dish soft cheese, salad, cold cuts (app 4-6) preserves, porridge, cereals, hot/cold milk, hot date slice, hot Croissant, Bacon, eggs (boiled/fried/omelette/scrambled) varies daily, sausage, frankfurter, tomatoes, beans, mushrooms, potato croquet, app 6-9 types of bread and 2 cake, decent chilled juice, tea and coffee. Think I remembered it all. You can have as much as you like and keep going to the buffet (self service) while ever you are capable of walking. NO EXTRA CHARGES. Same at evening meal (diff food and the meat is a bit tough) Once a week you are invited to pre evening meal cocktails and there was entertainment twice the week we were there but I offer no comment due to it being of no interest us.
Now to the down sides. It states in the brochure that it is a 10 min walk to the front. Thats ok. It does not tell you that it is downhill whichever way you go.......so.......you need to walk up the hill again on your return. This is ok if you are reasonably fit.
