Just returned from a four day stay at this hotel, wow. We had read the reviews and thought that no place could be this respected, we were wrong, it is as others have described, perfect is the word.
Prior to our arrival we emailed a query, if it was possible to get a room with a pool view rather than a street view, it was replied to in the matter of minutes, this set the tone of our experience during our stay. The pool view is the one to get, tranquil.
On our arrival, early in the morning, well 11am the receptonist was very plesant and helpful and the room was available immediatedly.
On our first night we asked to see the menu and were guided into the dining area and shown the array of food available, we hadn't booked half board on line at €10.00 per head, we decided to eat there when we were quoted €12.00 each. The food and the choices available influenced our decision to eat there every night during our stay. There is something for everyone available regardless of your tastes.
Breakfasts are similar, good selection, do not worry about the food in this hotel.
The rooms are clean and respectable and are cleaned daily. One of the first things you will see at this place are the staff cleaning around the pool at 7.30am, silently.
The rooms have air con, but for those that like a cup of tea on their own, no kettle is supplied, but is available to rent.
Staff are friendly and efficient.
If this is a three star, I can't imagine what one of their sister hotels is like as it is a four star.
There is a happy hour there and plenty of small pubs nearby.
This hotel has no frills and they have got it right.
