First off, I was a little unlucky in my timing. I arrived at the end of March and stayed the first week of April. The hotel had just opened its doors a few days earlier and that meant the beach was not ready for guests and was dirty the pool had not been heated ( we were able to use it on our last day tho) and the staff was just getting into it again. There were very few guests around and that made it all a bit strange. That said, the hotel is nice, rooms are basic and very clean and the staff was just great to us and really saved our holiday. They tried to do everything possible for us. There is not much of a veiw from the rooms, it is traintracks and some trees and a little bit of the sea. The furniture on the balcony was plastic and not very nice. We stayed two floors down from the resturant but constantly heard the chairs being dragged around the tile floor, odd since there were few guests but it really bothered me in the morning, waking up to the noise. The rooms are tiled as well and no slippers supplied so bring your own. The bedding was not to my liking either, the pillows were very lumpy and there was just a normal sheet for a cover. The hotel has a shuttle to the town, does not go often but if the times dont suit you, the hotel will try and arrange it anyway. The wellness centre is wonderful, got some treatments there and can fully recommend it. The pool is lovely too, it is an indoor pool but since we could not use it much it did not matter to us. But this hotel, all in all is not a 4 star so dont except it.
