We came here June 2011 and was on B&B basis. When we arrived we noted that the top floors were being done but all was perfect when we walked in. We were given a room facing the road on the new floors (The carpet got fitted in the halls whilst we were staying- much to our amazement because we never saw the workers really) and what a view. I can imagine facing the sea is impressive and usually I opt for that but I really cant fault facing the other way. If any bonuses perhaps the quiet of an evening. Ive seen a few people complain about the noise.
The room had obviously just been redone and I could not place one fault to it. Oh perhaps one. The light in the bathroom was very poor. Perhaps more lights or a higher watt. Shaving and doing makeup was challenging.
The staff were ok... didnt really interact with them much. We ate breakfast. It was a simple breakfast. Nothing to shout about.... but nothing to complain about either. Poor staff did seem overwhelmed at times. Maybe more drink stations.
We had a hire car (my biggest recommendation) and got around this great liitle island so quickly we opted to eat out every night.
One night we did go down with the mind to eat in but when we looked at the food we both struggled to find something we wanted. I know this is just one night. But based on that. When I do return ill be opting for the b&b again or the self catering.
The hotel does not have much within walking distance. A little bar and a couple of other hotels. You can catch the ferries to the little islands really easily from here.
There is plenty of sunlounges and the beach is nice. A dip in the sea was lovely.
We didnt see any entertainment staff.
We didnt see a lot of what's on here. But we did keep to ourselves I suppose. My son had gone on a sch trip.... so we had a gettaway. Actually with us two it was suitable. With my son when we return.... ? he is a fussy eater and apart from a pooltable not much for kids. We will have to go b&b or self catering.
The wait at the bar was not a problem. Perhaps 1-2 ppl in front. The eve entertainment was low key. They need something more.
Despite the work being done when we visited last year the hotel was spotless. Credit to the maids. Our maid always had a smile.
Overall I liked this hotel. It is somewhat isolated without a car. But that is what made it for us.
