Oceana Palace is labelled 5 star. Not sure who by. Rooms large but lack any character. Restauarant is buffet every night and very same all the time. Two sittings and you can either eat with the children at 18.30 or with the grown ups at 20.30. At 20.29 the bar empties as all rush up to the restaurant to make sure they get the best bits - not sure what they are as it is all much the same every night.
If you don't like the smell of cigarette smoke this is not the place for you. The lobby bar which is in large atrium setting is filled with smoke that then rises in the atrium so that all the rooms upstairs get polluted. It is almost impossible to avoid. If you want breakfast outside you will be surrounded by smokers.
Best bit of the hotel is the staff. Unfailingly cheerful, welcoming and ready to help. They even manage to pretend that all those 'regulars' who claim to be on first name terms are really their best friends.
We managed to enjoy ourselves but will not be back and could not wait to wash off the overwhelming smell of cigarettes.
