We booked a late deal with a standard room, and upon arrival managed to negotiate a great deal upgrading to a Mediterranean Suite with Sea View. Consequently we were delighted with the 75+ sqm accommodation which was furnished to a very high standard with a stunning bedroom, living room and massive bathroom room with large separate shower, and double balcony. It was very tastefully and expensively furnished and designed, and included all the usual amenities you would expect including AC, WiFi, Satellite TV, Safe, Mini Bar, Hairdryer, Kettle, etc, etc were all included and available.
We really could not fault the suite and just a few minor details such as room service not refilling the coffee, sugar, and no milk meant that we had to ask reception on a daily basis for items. Also the light switches seemed incredibly complicated (it could have just been me!) but you have a choice of dimmed setting, partially on, fully on or off. Get up in the night though and just try turning the bathroom lights on and this clever lighting was not so helpful and it was either all or nothing to the annoyance of my nearest and dearest!
Our biggest two issues were firstly no pool is included, which is very unclear on the hotel information. There is one in the adjoining spa but only at a 25 Euro charge per head. Secondly and as pointed out by Jim K in an earlier review, was the noise on the 6th floor from the lively restaurant and bar on the 7th floor. Not an easy fix granted but I would suggest the hotel invest in sound proofing as there is quite alot of noise disturbance until the early hours.
Overall then it was very good and if you can get a deal do go for a suite as they are very impressive. Our advice is too enjoy 7th floor the rooftop restaurant and bar (although quite pricey and noisy with the live DJ!) and make sure breakfast is included as this would be 29 Euro per head! Also avoid the mini bar unless you are a lottery winner!
