Arrived on 3rd Feb 2017 for a weeks stay. Well, the Hotel has certainly been very nicely updated. Same friendly staff and a new Chef producing a good menu. Decorated inside / outside with a new relaxing pool. New look restaurant and new furniture everywhere.

Nice atmosphere, very helpful staff, Delicate poolareas and nice little garden. Near to Lido, busses and good restaurants. The breakfast buffet could be improved by more "homemade" stuff! Big variety! Nicely furnitured lounge areas! A pleasant place to stay!
