We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We booked a suite and therefore had plenty of space and two balconies. The rooms are spacious and clean as is the bathroom. Breakfast was great. We only tried the poolside restaurant once which was fine, but as there were so many other choices within walking distance we mostly ate outside the hotel. However the hotel feels a little dated and doesn't quite have the luxuriousness you want from a 5 star. It is also enormous which means the breakfast room and main dining room are vast and have the feel of a mass tourist hotel rather than an intimate dining experience. The hotel is well located and there are plenty of restaurants in both directions. We'd recommend the seafood down by the harbour and several small restaurants around the side streets. Beware there is a steep walk back from the harbour. I would probably choose somewhere else next time.
