This hotel is situated right in front of the sea and the view from the breakfast room and the 5th floor sun terrace is wonderful. The location of the hotel is excellent and close to the dive schools, restaurants, lovely walks and pebble beach. There are nearby bus stops to other parts of the island and the tourist information office is two minutes away. There is also an underground flour mill very close by which is worth a visit, if you are interested in that sort of thing. It cost a couple of euros to get in.
The seaview rooms and the side view rooms are the best to have as the front rooms face a busy car park, our inward facing room was very dark, due to a very small window overlooking a small enclosed courtyard. The courtyard can get quite noisy, there is free internet in public spaces but not in the rooms. Many people used the courtyard to skype etc and this could be heard from the rooms at night. People also sat in this area to chat and this could also be heard from the rooms as well as staff talking to each other in the mornings whilst cleaning the area. However I am a light sleeper, deeper sleepers may not hear a thing! Some of the other inward facing rooms had large windows//doors so those rooms would have been lighter than ours.
The room itself was fine apart from being a bit dark, but as we were out a lot this did not matter too much. Our bathroom was not clean on our arrival and there were hairs in the bath and plug hole. The floor also had bits on it. The shower was little more that a trickle and I found it hard to remove shampoo with it. There was a fridge in the room which was nice and there was plenty of room to store your clothes. The double bed seemed to be two large singles put together but was still very comfortable. The air conditioning worked very well.
There is a 12 euro charge for a safety deposit box which can be accessed at reception. Towels for the beach can be borrowed from reception with a deposit.
The breakfast room is lovely and looks out over the bay, the self service buffet breakfast in fine, with the usual cooked food and cereals available. There was no fresh fruit available except for in a fruit salad in syrup, which as a shame. Breakfast starts at 7.30 so breakfast was not available for some of our early starts.
The reception staff were mostly charming, they were polite and happy to help .Only once did we have poor customer service from reception and that was from an older male receptionist, we found him to be very rude.
The sun terrace has wonderful views and we enjoyed sitting out there with a book.. The sun loungers could do with replacing as they are quite shabby. There is a small spa pool which is ideal for children but too small for adult swimmers, The pool is probably quite relaxing for those who like to sit in the pool and chat.
We would stay in this hotel again, there was nothing massively wrong with it and the views are lovely. The staff were mostly great. The reception and public areas are nice and our room was fine. The outside of the building looks very impressive and the location could not be better/
