The hotel is comfortable and well maintained, good pool on the roof, good location, friendly staff. The problem was the food, very basic continental breakfast, no fresh fruit. Dinner had two choices of edible but boring meals brought out by waiters, not silver service.
Dining room was more like a canteen than a restaurant.
The private beach opposite which carried the hotel's name was not free but charged between 10 euros and 18 euros per visit.
Drinks were very expensive eg small bottle of beer approx half pint 4 euros. On the first day half litre or one pint bottles were selling for 6 euros which was much better value, they disappeared on the second day and never reappeared.
These comments are a great shame because the hotel is very nice, the problem is 4 star price but 2 star service.
