We stayed for 5 nights towards the end of February to catch a little sun and culture. When arriving at the hotel, what a lovely surprise once you get through the crazy busy centre and narrow streets to get to the hotel. It felt quite magical if you like something different. We were greeted immediately which made our holiday begin straight away. We were told that they would be upgrading our room the next day so we didn't unpack just quickly changed and went to explore. It is only a few minutes walk from the main square and on route there is a cash point. If you walk the opposite way it's about 20 minutes to the new town which has more modern shops and restaurants rather than the traditional souks on your doorstep. The breakfast was fine, they sometimes fetched out pancakes there was always a selection of meats, cheese, eggs etc plus some form of cakes, I drank fruit tea and on the 3rd day we learnt they did omelettes which were very tasty. The rooftop had sun beds and chairs which we made the most of as we had lovely weather. We had 3 rooms in 5 nights... We began in a bright cheerful room in a small courtyard behind the pool which was tranquil, we then had 3 nights in our upgraded room which was large, cold and in the main courtyard right by reception making this room rather noisy, as people just talking could keep you awake as you could hear every word. Our 3rd room was on the roof it had a shower in the actual room, unusual but it worked. I have to say I would have been happy with the first room but we just went with it and absorbed the experience. There was a small pool in the courtyard, more of a plunge pool than a swimming pool. The reception and waiting staff were efficient and pleasant and we did tab all of our food and drink. We kept a record and it was pretty accurate when we paid on departure. I will say that they burn candles which agitated my nose and eyes, I wished for antihistamine so a warning to you fellow sufferers. In summary I would recommend this hotel to those who like something different who would appreciate the quirkiness, it has a good location with helpful staff and individuality in each room.
