The staff in this hotel, particularly the restaurant staff, are excellent. However, for the price of the holiday it was extremely disappointing, and bluntly, a bit of a rip off.. The hotel is extremely run down and the decor is very shabby in places with a broken radiator cover in the bedroom. The bedroom had a fabulous sea view but it was like stepping into a hot furnace each time we stepped inside. However the housekeeping staff did a great job in keeping it clean.
jThe pool side chairs and loungers were frankly filthy, and could have done with a really good clean. The steps leading into the pool were wobbly and should have been made secure. Not very good from a health and safety aspect. A very disappointing aspect was lack of wifi which was only available in the reception area. For this day and age this is not really good enough. Running my own business I need internet access and was expecting wifi in my hotel room( particularly for the price paid) so it was very inconvenient to have to traipse down to reception each time I needed it.The average age of guests here looked to be 65+ and a great many were on coach trip breaks. Maybe this why there is no wifi in all areas as the owners feel there is no need due to the clientele they attract. Such a shame as it could be fabulous hotel for families, couples and business people and not just for the elderly. In essence, it needs fully updating and maybe the owners need to be less complacent.
