Do be Warned, Do not Book The Economy Room at This Hotel.
We too had a Big Shock when we arrived, Not The Hotels fault, our Booking site was to blame with misleading Information or rather No Information.
Block at back of Hotel with No Air Conditioning, No Balcony and a very small room only big enough for two single Beds. I can only describe as Staff Quarters!
After a tense 24 hours waiting to see if we could be moved into The Hotel,which we assumed we had booked. We got a room on the 2nd floor at the back of the Hotel, Good size room with all The Facilities you would expect, at an extra cost of 108 Euros.
Then our Holiday Started...
This Hotel is Modern and Clean, with what I would descibe as an Ikea layout and Furniture feel.
Breakfast was good, The usual choices, all good.
Best part of This Hotel is the Balcony in the Bar on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool and sea, very reasonable prices.
Pool area is pleasant and well kept, we always got a sun bed, except Sundays when I think the locals use it!There is also a Grassy quieter area if needed.
Overhall we had a very relaxing stay in this Hotel, only a few English staying.
I would recommend for its close proximity to the Beach and 5 - 10 minute walk to the Old Town.
Just a few Observations...
Pool Area could do with a snack bar for those not on Half board or All inclusive.
Second Lift was not in use for five days.
Pool area was closed for maintainance during guests hours, surely after hours would be better.
