Firstly, please note that this – apparently brand new - hotel is NOT at number 28, but at number 7. We stayed four nights in early July in an upstairs room. The rooms were spotlessly clean; the kitchenette had a refrigerator, a microwave oven and two gas hobs; the staff even washed up the cups and plates for us in the morning. We did not eat at the hotel restaurant, we just cooked for ourselves. There is air conditioning, the bed is very comfortable (great bed linen) and the bathroom is large with a great shower, but no bath.
There are a couple of drawbacks, however: while the pool is long, it is less than three metres across, so I fear that when the hotel gets busy, swimming along the length of the pool will not be possible. Due to the orientation of the buildings and the movement of the sun, one side of the pool is always in the shade, while the other side is always in the sunshine. When you walk along the side of the pool, you are VERY close to the patios of the downstairs rooms.
It is possible to walk to the beach from the hotel in ten minutes, but the nicer beach (which starts at the Hotel Mercure) is about a twenty minute walk. There are bicycles at the hotel, but these can be hired only by the hour. The free shuttle into town is only available if there are sufficient staff at the front desk, so that one can act as driver. In practice, we had no problems.
