This place is clean & has a great location as well as being cheap, what more can you ask for.
Location, it is literally a few minutes to the old town square as well as a few beaches.
It is surrounded by places to drink, eat & shop.
Hotel - I stayed here for a week on a room only basis but I was suprised to find it had some cups, plates, cutlery, glasses, mini fridge & they provided me with a kettle at no extra cost.
The towels were changed every day as well as the rooms cleaned, now considering I stayed here as a solo traveller & I do not make a lot of mess the cleaning standard was fine for me.
The room had air conditioning & also a tv which had a few news channels, music channels & a few movie channels, again a pleasant suprise.
The room overlooked the old town square, pool & had a sea view, the balcony was very small but you could sit out on it. You would probably have a problem if you were a tall person as not much leg room.
They provide free wifi but you can only pick up the signal in the seating area at the entrance to the hotel which was fine, all the details for connecting to the wifi where in a brochure on the reception near to a table full of leaflets with ideas of trips/days out.
I never went down to the pool area as it only got the sun until around 3pm ish & there was not room to really move the sunbeds around (sun bathing queen) so I used a couple of the hotel's terraces on the 4th & 5th floors. The views from up there were great, plenty of room & sunbeds, I was in heaven as the weather was lovely & they got the sun all day.
The staff on reception were good, they sorted out my kettle for the room, they advised me where the terraces where for sunbathing, they sorted out the rental of the safe in my room which was 30 euro but you get 15 back & they also gave me a wakeup call on the day of my departure.
The cleaners were smiley always said hello & good morning.
It was a mixed bag of people who stayed here, young, old & people from different countries but I never seen or heard of any problems. I felt safe in my room & yes on an evening you can hear the music from the bars in the old town square but I closed over the patio doors & popped the air-con on & I never had an issue sleeping.
To sum this place up it is a little gem, for the price I think you get a lot. It really depends on what sort of holiday you want but I would have no problems staying here again either as a solo traveller or with the girls.
My holiday expectations was a week off work & the gym in order to chill out, sunbathe, eat/drink & meet some nice people & I achieved all of that.
