We joined our parents on holiday who were staying in the sister 4 * Fortina. We decided to stay in the 5* Fortina Spa resort. Both hotels failed to live up to their ratings and are overdue a refurb, although the spa hotel is definitely the better hotel. All the facilities and restaurants are shared. Was a shame that the spa and pool is mainly accessible via the Fortina hotel.
Gym - equipment dated and not working properly, although kept clean.
Outside pool - terrible! Dirty beds, dirty cushions for the beds, floor area well in need of repair and paint, pools freezing cold.
Inside pool area - dirty, although looks like not used at this time of year. Hope they clean away the miss and dirt ready for the summer visitors!
Restaurants - adequate, but average. Beware in Fortina main restaurant price for food varies although I am sure it shouldn't.
Staff in Limes bar - excellent, friendly and attentive.
Staff in breakfast area - friendly, especially the lady who front of house. Nice to have eggs cooked freshly to order.
Room - nice, but more 4 star than 5 star. Room smelt of cigarettes, but was non smoking room.
Towels - LOL! Must be using the same towels as when the hotel first opened. Small, hard and old.
The pool area towels - in red colour, also very small and old.
Beware - photographs on the hotel web site are definitely not current!
