We stayed here for one night in August and found it very expensive but chose it for the good location right opposite the sea. At the time we did not realise that the restaurants and bars were a 15 minute walk in land.
We were given a room with double aspect and a balcony and a double bath as well as a shower. Our children's room initially had a double bed...even though they are different sex young adults! This was quickly sorted out.
We found the accomodation tired and that it lacked a little thought. There was no air conditioning and the ceiling fan could not be on if the door opened as it hit the door! The lavatory door when closed, touched my knees! The overall finish was that of an enthusiastic amateur.
The reception staff were very friendly and accomodating. Breakfast was laughable....coffee in styrophone cups and pastries in plastic bags to be collected from reception and eaten....or binned in your room!
Overall too expensive and a disappointment as it was the most expensive place we stayed in our two week trip!
