So, let's start with a positive. The hotel is only a €25 taxi ride from the airport.
We checked in and the only information we were given was what time and where breakfast was.
There was no information given about the private beach which we later discovered excited from a family staying in the hotel. The sun loungers are free there and are €20 on the beach. The hotel are supposed to give you a ticket to present to the people running the beach which we weren't given.
The room we checked into was 720 and the shower head pointed inward towards the wall and it was like playing catch the drip as there was zero power to it. In addition the bath was filthy so you couldn't opt for a bath. By this point we had unpacked and I had to ask for a change of room. The staff were not apologetic in the slightest and I was told the mould around the bath was fine.
The shower in the new room went hot and cold which is the last thing you want after a day at the beach. It was also not very powerful.
The location of the hotel is perfect as it's only a twenty mins walk to the private beach (there are twice daily shuttle bus') and the town and port is only a couple of mins walk away.
The breakfast was nice and the view over the port was stunning.
The rooms were cleaned and fresh towels provided daily which was great.
Toilet paper was not replenished by the cleaning staff so we had to source our own.
I thought the rooms were very basic and there was only one plug socket!
Overall this is a three star hotel at best.
