Where to start about this hotel? My husband and I stayed for a week in September, and were very disappointed in the place. On arrival we were dismayed by the dark dated reception area, and on entering the room we were ready to ask immediately for a room change. It was shabby, extremely dark, with heavy dark wood furniture, thick dark curtains covering the whole window area, two huge armchairs (dark again), and worst of all a dingy carpet with stains. Why have a carpet in a Meditterranean climate anyway? The bathroom was equally dingy and none too clean, with a brown stained shower curtain, yuk. Breakfast was a sorry affair, we didnt bother after the first day, choosing instead to take breakfast out each morning. Dinner the first two nights was okay, though by no means good. The third night we were told it was a buffet as it was changeover day. We didnt bother, it was bland and boring., and to be honest, horrible, The next night we went down, exactly the same thing, and so it went on, so that after 3 nights we gave up completely and ate out. After paying for half board then paying to eat out I was pretty mad. I know from reading these reviews that a lot of people have returned here year after year, and enjoy the food, but I really don't get it. We have stayed in plenty of 3 star hotels and been perfectly happy, but how this hotel gets 3 stars amazes me. There were silk flower arrangements randomly placed that were covered in dust. Why bother? Thick dust on an unused ashtray standing by the lift on the 1st floor, for god's sake give the place a good clean and get rid of all the old tat all over the place. Brighten the rooms up and make them look like a nice sunny and bright holiday home for a week. This hotel is depressing. Never again.
Looking forward to reading the curt reply from management that they seem to give to negative reviews, I really don't think they give a damn at all.
