Stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks in October, the second week coincided with the closure of the hotel for the end of the season
The rooms were comfortable and cleaned daily, they are however missing a full length mirror and an ironing board , but if you ask they will provide an ironing board. the lighting in the rooms is dim.
The food was very good plenty of meat and fish and variety, until the second week when the variety and quality was slightly less, but still nice food, pool side snacks were really tasty and made a light change from the restaurant at lunch time.
The pool area was clean and well maintained, pool bar opened most of the day in the first week, then we had a couple of rainy days and then the pool bar didn't reopen when we had good weather in the second week.
All the staff at the hotel are a credit to the management, Claudia the animation girl was eager to work but had limited equipment, all of them are friendly and helpful.
had a lengthy discussion with Bruno the manager the night before we left and he informed us of some little changes that are being made to the hotel for next year including the full length mirror
would we go back to this hotel "YES"
would give it a 8.5/10
