We stayed for three nights as an add-on to our river cruise. We had an inside room (courtyard view) on the seventh floor. The room was clean but is in need of modernization. The bathroom fixtures were of 1950s vintage, and the floor and wall tiles definitely showed their age. The analog thermostat on the wall seemed to have little control over the room temperature, although the room was kept cool during our stay. One annoying feature was that the electrical outlets lost power when the room key was removed from its slot, or when the master light switch was turned off, preventing us from charging our phones, etc. unless the lights were on.
Breakfast buffet, which was included in our package, was typical, although we did not see an option for omelets or cooked eggs, only scrambled. Service was friendly.
The front desk / concierge staff were also friendly, although not very helpful. Questions about bus routes, travel times etc. were answered with inaccurate or partial information. It was as if these folks just moved into town themselves.
The location is prime, just across from the beach (22e per day for a chair and umbrella, unless you want to sit on rocks) and a 5 minute walk to old town and shopping, restaurants, etc.. The comments by other travelers about the McDonalds downstairs and the crowds are fair, although we had expected such given the location and high season.
Overall an average resort hotel in a great location.
