We booked on line and were bowled over by the photographs of this hotel online. Sadly it is very tired, the rooms were very basic scruffy bathrooms, broken chairs on the balcony as we paid extra for a large balcony room with a view. Despite having reported the broken chairs on arrival, still a week later nothing done! The lift is slow and always clogged up with staff and their cleaning trollies. The hotel management were a miserable bunch. Breakfast was very disappointing. Coffee was disgusting and from either a machine or cheap instant. The breads at breakfast were also not good and pastries baked off from a freezer. I had high hope as am a pastry chef and was looking forward to some delicious Italian breads and pastries. Everywhere looked like it needed some serious TLC in this hotel which at one time may have been Grand but sadly no more. We would not recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday, the beaches are just ok, and the hotel pool is one heck of a schlepp down about 100 steep steps each day!
