We booked a basic room and were very disappointed. It overlooked some kind of shaft so there was no view. There was also a crack in the bath tub and a foul smell coming from the drain. We asked to move rooms but we were told that there weren't any. The next day we asked again and said we didn't mind paying extra so we switched to a gorgeous room for an additional €40 per night. It was a shame to have to spend the money but it was worth it - we had a great view of the pool next door and the sea.
The pool and beach area are really lovely and all waiting staff were very friendly. Breakfast was nice - pretty standard and lunch was fairly good too (although pretty pricey).
The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the main square and has amazing views.
Free wi-fi is provided.
All in all a great place, I just wished we'd had the better room from the off.
You may want to check out booking direct via their website as they seem to have some kind of offer that you get €600 to spend in the hotel (sounds too good to be true so may have a catch, but worth investigating)
