Second time here in a few months, and discovered a big difference between the refurbished rooms (3rd floor) and the one we stayed in last time on the 4th floor. Its only when you see the refurbished ones that you realise that the others are a bit shabby.
The big selling point here are the views and you really can't get better than the seaview rooms. Its absolutely lovely lying in bed in the morning with the balcony doors open and hearing the waves.
We included breakfast this time and its excellent, from cakes and waffles to paella and spanish omlette you can have it all here. The dining room is huge, lots of tables have sea views and there is an oudoor area. My husband particularly enjoyed the donut type cake that looked unfortunately like something that a dog might have left behind.
As mentioned elsewhere the entrance area does smell somewhat of drains but as there was nobody there playing the grand piano there's no reason to linger there.
The bars could be better - the one by the pool is very small and the one in the lobby has no atmosphere and no windows. But there are plenty of bars a short walk away.
The reception staff member was very pleasant at check-in, changing the allocated room of one of our party to one that wasn't over the pool and had more of a side sea view.
Its not a luxury hotel so don't expect it, but its good.
