just wanted to write this and share my experience. This Hotel is modern clean and in ideal location. The Staff could not have been more helpful, helped my daughter who wasnt staying with us, to print off her boarding pass. Always smiling and happy the staff were so nice. Our room faced the front. it was quite small but adequate with feature wooden furnishings. If you are a light sleeper take earplugs as the noise levels at night continue til 4am, bit mostly along the road a bit. There is a lovely bar, which was emply while we were there, but i expect in summer it could be busier. We ate out, and would recommend the breakfast in the little cafe at the bottom of the escalator as it had proper bacon and was only 3euros 50. Hope this helps you decide if this hotel is for you. I would stay again.

Room Tip: If you like people watching then ask for front room, we were 208 and nice outlook.

Stayed at the Polana twice now....... its location is excellent right in the centre of the old town, just two minutes walk from the beach and fabulous restaurants.
The Polana is spotlessly clean, the rooms are basic but are cleaned everyday with new towels. The rooms look as though they have just been refurbished. Beds are really comfortable. The breakfast is continental so we found it better not to pay for the 6 euros for it and eat out.
The friendliness and warmth of all the staff is second to none. They are so accomodating. As soon as we arrived for our second visit they recognised us! I just can't praise this hotel enough. Yes it has no pool, but there are two beautiful beaches right on its door step. If you are looking for somewhere to stay for a short break the Polana is the one!! I always read the reviews of different hotels and notice how much they differ..... but please please do not hesitate to book the Polana you won't be disappointed. We have already booked again for next years short break.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel over look the street, the back ones overlook a stone walls.

We only booked this a month before we were going and what a bargain. The hotel was very clean and basic, the rooms cleaned every day and new towels layed out. We had a twin room with a bathroom and a small balcony area looking out to the old town below with bars, restaurants and plenty of small shops for browsing round. The windows kept any late noise out so it wasn't a problem trying to sleep at all.

The location was absolutely fantastic. Straight out of the hotel you find yourself on the typical narrow cobbled streets, to the left just a couple of minutes stroll to the square where there are some fantastic bars, restaurants and street entertainment. To the right another couple of minutes stroll takes you past more restaurants and shops to the beautiful sandy beach.

We didn't need to travel any further, everything we had was right here for a perfect beach holiday and not too expensive to eat and drink out. We can't wait to go back!!!!

Room Tip: We had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the town and was perfect for us. The rooms on the 3rd floor facing the town had large balconys which we thought we would miss, but not at all due to the perfect location.

Yes you get what you pay for accommodation wise, but money can't buy the friendliness, warmth and helpfulness of the hotel staff. Yes it's basic but the location is the business!!! Beside everything.. Taxis, both beaches, three minutes walk from the fabulous fishermans beach a bit more from the town beach but it's all the one by the shore. The place was spotless and bright. Rooms are small but adequate. You have use of the pool in a sister hotel a few doors down. Will defo be back. So homely and helpful

We booked this online and as a late 20's couple it was perfect. Right in town with the restaurants and bars so close, so so close to the beach. The breakfast was simple and more than adequate with pastries, cereals, toast and fresh juices. Room was perfectly clean, comfy bed, english TV, nice view and quiet with double glazing windows even at 4 in the morning with the clubs, meaning that it is suitable for all ages and those who want an early night & a good sleep. The staff were more than helpful and anything we wanted was dealt with very quickly. Do not believe the old reviews, this place has just been done up & even though it had only been open a matter of weeks, we couldnt have been happier!

Room Tip: Higher up room was nice and quiet! But only 3rd floors down have stairs - 4th has just lift.
