We spent the week aghast.
First of all, unless you want to face the main road plus a sewage pipe extension under construction, you'll have to pay about 40 euros a night extra to change your room to face the sea. Air Canada doesn't mention this.
They say on the website there's a mini-bar. There isn't. As the front desk explained, it's a "cooling cupboard."
They don't serve drinks on the hotel's beach. Seriously. We would have had to drink warm white wine (no fridge) out of sippy cups.
You can't have a second room key without paying a huge deposit that you will forfeit if it's lost or stolen.
You have to pay a deposit to use your phone for local calls. I am not making this up.
The restaurant is awful. The bartender is surly. The bed was hard as a board. The pillows are stained and lumpy, the stained pillow covered with only one pillowcase (there's no zippered cover beneath). This did bother me.
The TV is so tiny you can't read the captions on the bottom, even with reading glasses and peering.
There is four minutes of hot water. I understand that, but they should tell you first. A slightly hot bath, for instance, would not be possible.
I could go on, but I won't. It's a cheap hotel, I admit, and might be fine for hikers. But it was not fine for me.
