The hotel is well placed for the sea although its setting is in a strange part of the city. We booked a city view room which was well appointed. However the first and most obvious things were a strange odour from the otherwise well-appointed bathroom (it would seem that the enclosed bathrooms are not ventilated) - and the noise from traffic down below was too intrusive to keep the window open for long.
After settling in, we were surprised and disappointed that the outdoor swimming pool was closed and not due to be opened until next week (just before Easter). The only other outdoor pool was what seemed to be a children's pool which was useless for swimming.
The generous space devoted to a formal garden and fountains felt barren, and not designed to be used for the general enjoyment of guests. There was no seating beyond the terrace and almost nobody walked around the grounds. The lounge furniture was substantial yet uncomfortable, and every public area was infused with piped music that had an insistent and persistent thump to it.
Knowing this was not what we wanted we decide to alter our original plan of a five night stay to one night. Because apart from the excellent staff and a good breakfast, the hotel was overall a disappointment.
