Originally our plans were for only one night but since we had pre-payed it forced us to stay 2 nights. Had we known we were staying 2 nights , our preference would have been to stay nearer the Old Town. We also had booked for a non-sea view which can be depressing if staying for longer - you only see the parking lot. As many readers have stated the 4 hotel resort shuttles people around the hotels. In our case they upgraded us for the first night but then told us we needed to change for our second night - we spoke to the manager and sorted it out. Our room was like a standard Marriott courtyard. The best thing about the hotel was the out outstanding view and rocky beach to jump directly into the sea. The a la carte restaurant (Zoe) was correct if a bit over-priced - not clear where you can get just a sandwich. The included breakfast although plentiful was very mediocre - the cooked meats were intimidating and the thinly sliced mushrooms dry and unappealing. The staff on the most part was professional and pleasant. I do not think this is a 5 star hotel, details are not there like fluffy beach towels (theirs were actually quite thin) but a perfectly adequate 4 star if the room had included a view for the price which was significantly more than the non-sea view. We came in high season to a very expensive city - maybe in September you get better value.
