Just back from a week's bed and breakfast at this hotel. Was very impressed with the morning breakfast, lots of choice! The pool side was very big so even though people were down pretty early in the morning to get sunbeds you could still get one if you came down about 11ish, any later I think you would be struggling so if you're up early for breakfast would recommend putting towels out first, there is actually a queue at 9 in the morn! The rooms were of a decent standard, very basic but had everything you need. The only thing that was you had to pay for fridge which was 30 euros for the week and a safe which would 2.50 euros for the day. The rooms were also very clean and got cleaned everyday, clean towels etc.
The hotel is an ideal location for the beach, nightlife and the shops, and restaurants. There is also a market on a wed morn which if you come out of the hotel and turn right is only 10 mins walk. There was a varied group of us, made up of couples and singles ranging from 22-50s, the hotel had a good mix, families with children, older people and big groups of hen/stags.
The only problem we had on our week's stay was the initial check in, it was painful. We had one couple in front of the group of 10 of us and it took 15 minutes before any of us got seen to. We had also requested certain rooms to be together as my sister was going to be on her own and that was also a disaster, we eventually got her on the same floor as us but it was at opposite ends of the hotel. In their defence it was only a request but the fact there was such a large group of us, it was a bit disappointing as it was a simple request. Would of hated our queue to have been any longer there has times when the queue has been huge when walking past at different points of the day. Would dread to think how long it would take these guests to check in.
Overall it was a fantastic stay, staff were friendly and check in was only a minor part of our hol! So if this could be fixed the hotel would be ideal for anyone! Would definitely go back! :)
