we stayed here for a long weekend and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, the only thing I would stress is to book a room with a view over the marina as the other side of the hotel is a busy road. The reception area is ultra modern and checkin was efficient with English speaking staff The rooms were very clean and comfortable but definately a little dated, there was a fridge and a good sized balcony looking out over the marina and out to the islands. The pool up on the roof was great and was never too busy and there were free sunbeds. Beware of bar prices as a small beer was 3 euros, we just went to a nearby supermarket and bought a few for 50 cents and put them in the fridge, in fairness though we are a bit tight!
Breakfast was superb with a good variety and a help yourself buffet, again the restaurant is on the top floor and has stunning views. As for location you cant fault it, straight over the road to the old town where you will find plenty of restaurants and quiet bars. There are no beaches here but there is a water taxi close to the hotel which will take you to one of the many beaches for 10 euros return, its a nice trip and well worth the effort. Very handy for the airport with the bus dropping yu off 5o meteres from the hotel, about 2o mins and cost 1.75.
Better hotel than we expected and a fabulous place, we will definately be returning.
