Just returned (24th Mar) from a 4 day-trip to the Hilton. The hotel is lovely, very clean and spacious but just be warned that there is a huge amount of building work going on. We had a room with a fabulous view overlooking the marina on the entrance level (5), all the rooms below (4) are being renovated and the banging starts at 8am - REALLY relaxing! If you are going for sun, then wait a few more weeks yet, its VERY windy and this effectively reduces any increase in temp from the UK. Didn't wear a t-shirt at all in 4 days, never mind a bikini! Luckily, there is a more than adequate indoor pool and gym to while away a couple of hours.
The food is great, but the exchange rate against the euro makes eating out expensive..... even in the town you're looking at £35 for a very average meal and personally I would rather pay more for the excellent quality in the hotel - the Blue Elephant thai is fantastic - but it was £70 for 2 with only one glass of wine - forewarned is forearmed....... but absolutely delicious and fantastic service.
Beware of the minibar prices - I know its a 5* hotel but £3.50 for a bottle of water/coke/sprite and £7.50 for a tiny wine. In the small shops (everywhere on every street) I got the same red wine as in the mini bar for £1.20 a bottle.
If you are suffering bad weather take an easy stroll to St Georges and the Bay Street shopping mall where you will find a 10 screen cinema showing all the latest movies.
Overall we had an enjoyable stay and would return, albeit later in the year when it would be possible to take advantage of the fabulous outdoor pool.
