The hotel is in the process of being refurbished and the old (unfurbished) rooms are not good - smelly and look dirty.
We spent 2 nights in a refurbished room on the 17th floor with a stunning view of the sea. The room had a small balcony with a table and 2 chairs and you could sit comfortably outside if you so wished.
The air conditioning worked well as did the flat screen tv.
The bed was a king size and very comfortable. The bathroom only had a shower but that was not a problem for us. The shower is a rain shower.
The only problem I had with the accomodation was the location of the toilet - with the refurbishment the basin has been expanded such that the space for the toilet is very cramped. I am a small person and even I had a problem seating myself on the toilet between the wall and the basin.
The breakfast was delicious.
The service at reception was very slow and only 2 people were on duty every time we went to reception. The hotel is busy, busy and they could up the ante if they were more efficient at reception.
We swam in the indoor pool and it was clean and very refreshing.
The location of the hotel is very good and the only problem is parking. There is parking underneath the hotel but it is very full and also expensive. Street parking is very difficult at peak hours.
We would definitely stay here again.
Reasonable price and good location.
