very impressed with the entrance and reception area on arrival.
after a short wait for our room we entered our room which was on reception level.
the room was great and very clean , all what i expected as we paid extra for a sea view room.
checked the view out on the balcony as was then slighty dissapointed, overlooking the car park and staff having there break was not my idea of sea view! didnt want to say anything but was really dissappointed when we paid extra for a view.
glad i did , staff was good and 10 minutes later we were moved to a top floor room with a great view .room was just as good.
pool area was great and very clean .
drinks were VERY expensive from the hotel , nearly 14 euros for double jack daniels and coke !! sort of expected this in a 5 star hotel.
breakfast was VERY nice. plenty for all tastes , my only gripe was having to find someone to ask for coffee, 2 days running ,(not a 5 star service when your staying in a 5 star hotel!!) on the monday it was totally different ,was asked on being seated .
i agree with some other reviews , is this a 5 star hotel ?.. mmmm ,no its not , but it is close and a very nice hotel and i would stay here again.
