We stayed at the 4 star Argosy Hotel during the last week of May. We found it was a good time to holiday for those of us of a certain age with our family grown -up. Not sure what it would be like when the families arrive.
I didn't get around to using the spa but it was good to have the option.
The hotel is very clean and the facilities are very good. The gym is small but useful, the pools are good, we saw the pool water being tested which was reassuring. The poolside furniture seemed to be new, as were the beds and pillows which are clean and comfortable.
We had a balcony with a sea view which was nice to relax on, however there are many places both inside and out to sit and relax.
We went on a B&B basis as we like to try local restaurants, the breakfast buffet was excellant.
Each morning I enjoyed cereal, freshly made pancakes, omelets and crispy bacon covered with honey! there is plenty of choice.
The staff were friendly and helpful, for example we arrived after midnight and the guy on reception made us tea. There wasn't tea making facilities in the room however when we asked for a kettle etc. they provided them.
The hotel provide pool exercise sessions and entertainment in the evening. The gardens are nice to walk through in the evening and the beach is only a 10 minute walk away in front of the neighbouring hotel which is in the same chain of hotels.
There is a local bus the no. 6 outside the hotel every 20 mins, its inexpensive and drops you at the entrance to the old walled city.
We ate out in a different restaurant in the city each night, great variety.
We walked the city walls which takes over an hour great views from it.
There are many boat and coach trips to explore further afield.
The cable car is worth a trip if you want an even better view.
The sea water is so clean and clear, and the tap water is safe to drink.
I would recommend it and go back some time.
