This is a great value hotel in a very over priced and hotel packed area. The staff are really helpful including picking up our luggage from the tourist office that checks you in.
Our room was perched up above the pool and main hotel area, complete with a private balcony and outdoor seating.
The rooms are mainly white (of course), with the layout an open plan studio with sumptuous queen beds and a small seating area that was quickly made into a dressing room as we quickly shed all clothing to get into the sunshine and water. The bathroom was oversized and cave like, offering plenty of space to line up my bottles of sunscreen.
The accommodation included breakfast and we were a little disappointed on day one as it was quite basic. They must have read our minds on day two, as the breakfast spread was beefed up to include a range of hot options. I preferred to stick with the greek yoghurt and honey, sparking off quite the addiction. Free tea/coffee/juice all day is a nice touch, and particularly handy during the long hot days by the pool. You could easily stay in the hotel and only pop out for food and have a great holiday. the uninterrupted views are incredible.
We would highly reccommend this hotel and would be happy to return.
Things to watch out for - the steps
Without sounding like a completely lazy person, they could do with some work. While it is expected that a Cliffside property is going to be laden with stairs, the crumbled tiles and concrete mix was slightly dangerous, and while no injuries were recorded, it was a bit of a daily struggle to get up and down each day in one piece. There was plenty detail on Tripadvisor with warnings, and the staff do carry your bags for you, but they could still be improved.
