Everyone knows by now that the rooms need updating and airco, and that there is a parking issue with beach visitors; I'm sure the management is aware and it will be dealt with in due time - there were already surveyors in and out of the building while we were there. So the for the core business: the rooms are still clean and comfortable with a spacious balcony; the breakfast and dinner buffets are copious, varied and of good quality: you don't have to queue and if you get tired with something, you eat something else.
The staff are wonderful, nice and polite - even with the toughest of customers - and always helpful. There are great sports and leisure facilities - we almost had the whole tennis centre to ourselves, and the tennis manager Amedeo was very outgoing.
The walk to the old town is ONLY and exactly 10 mins. and does NOT go through a derelict industrial area, but past a historic railway building (if you care to read the signs) and one of the best seaside restaurants (Hrast - offering a nice change from the complimentary buffet). Very recommendable.
