We arrived at the hotel, full of great expectations, the hotel reception area looked promising, staff were friendly, we were shown to our room and what a major let down> the view was great of the marina but the balcony was tiny with plastic chair and table, had no sunshine all day as North facing and bird mess all over, was very unappealing, in fact gross.
The coffee facilities in the room are at a charge 2 euro per coffee, there was no ipod dock as stated on the website, the bathroom was tiny, poorly designed, tired and not clean. The hairdryer was the old fashioned type stuck to the wall which was a waste of time, The supposed power shower was just a mere trickle. The beds were uncomfortable and who wants to sleep in two singles anyway?
The pool area was ok but a little tired, we were only allowed 1 towel each and if you wanted to relax on the beach there was a huge charge for using their sun beds. Drinks were over priced. Breakfast was predictable and on a busy morning a bit like butlins in the sun.
The hotel lounges and bars all very lovely, cool vibe and friendly attentative staff, just the room and the penny pinching hotel charges that really dissapointed us. Having stayed in many 5* accommodations around the globe this was not a 5* in our opinion it was little more than 3*. I'm sure many loved it but can only speak from our experience and we would not stay again. The hotel is perfectly situated for the marina but wasn't our cup of tea at all. In fact we were happy to leave for the comforts of home. To sum up the room, blue wood chip decor, with loose wire accents.
