We arrived at about 5.30pm on the evening of Saturday 10th September not having made any reservation, we were looking for a place on the edge of town away from the bars & shops. Very pleased to be offered a one bedded apartment on the top floor of four, we inspected the apartment, very clean with equipment and facililites good enough for 4 nights peace and quiet and restful evenings talking and sipping wine on the balconey. The apartment was facing the sea & promenade, no one walking past hotel as the swimming pool was at the front of the hotel ( which closes at 8.30pm). There was a foot path to the left of the pool which had 3 x five a side football pitchs and a tennis court, beach hut and childrens playground, presumming it was part of the hotel we accepted the room ( 130 euro per night).
The balcony at this time was our only concern as the design leaves no privacy as they are open plan with only a small waist height wall and a strip of vertical plaster and next door could see directly in to our room and are on full view when seated on the balcony ( Very uncomfortable)
BUT ! worse to come was the football pitches DID NOT belong to the hotel ( which looked as if the did from the balcony) thinking, because the pool closes at 8.30pm the rest of the facilities would (we should have been told thisn when booking in )
For 4 terrible stressful nights the floodlight pitches were in full use, 30 grown men (not children) played in full light, whistle blowing, ball thudding & echoing, men chantting and clapping until after midnight ( yes after midnight).
I complained on the Monday night to be told nothing to do with the hotel and is open every night till midnight and after 12 the police are informed.
Very dismissive staff ( not his problem, shoulder shrugging, palms of hands out stretched, reduction not possible and looked away, very rude.
So if you want a peacefull, quite stay , romantic nights then stay away from this hotel.
No wonder there are plenty rooms available, the were less than half full.
