A unique hotel, very different to the usual high-rise blocks that prevail.
Our room (315) was in the building at the rear, accessed via an enclosed bridge over the road - it feels like a tunnel, albeit a high-quality-finished tunnel, as you walk through, festooned with old photos of the town and picture mirrors.
This building is even more elevated than the main reception/bar/dining building and we did pay extra for the sea view. We did get a sea view, but the sea is a fair distance away and you're looking between and above the buildings in front to see it. Our balcony was also quite small, but fine for two people.
The room itself was fairly spacious with lots of storage space and all very clean.
The staff are all very friendly, helpful and efficient, a credit to the hotel.
We stayed half-board. Food was fine, no problem getting a table in the dining room and no big queues. Breakfast 8am -10am; dinner 7pm - 9.30pm.
The walk into the old town and back is nothing to be concerned about. There are quite a few steps with gradual inclines linking between, and quite a steep ramp for the final section at the top, but all perfectly manageable. There are minimarts and a couple of bars just off this walkway if you need to stop off for a drink or an ice cream. It takes less than 5 minutes down to the cliff-top path running parallel with the beach, this takes you into the old town via meandering cobbled streets.
A good, quiet location, but still close enough to the lively old town and beach.
