This hotel has a good location, on a quiet road (although our room was at the back), and only 10 mins walk to the main part of town, or 5 mins to the cable car which led down to the beach. The staff were helpful and a little on the formal side. The pool area was tranquil (no kids while we were there!), towels were provided and the pool bar did drinks and light lunches on a terrace with gorgeous views over the sea.
Now the negatives - the rooms are somewhat tired and the whole place really feels as if it was last overhauled about 20 years ago. Our room was small, with a wardrobe but no chest of drawers. The bathroom was pretty disappointing, with small bath and rather sad weak shower over it.
However, we had fresh laundry and towels every day and the standards of cleanliness were good. Breakfast was satisfactory but nothing special, although the pastries were lovely and fresh.
So in conclusion, nice enough but not a four star by my standards.
