We chose to stay at this hotel to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary because it offered a balcony /sea view room and it appeared from the photos that it was right on the beach. Was slightly disappointed to discover a busy road between the hotel and the beach, so the pictures are slightly misleading though. We were pleasantly greeted and a very nice porter took our bags to our room. The room itself was bright, airy and spacious, with crisp white bed linen. There was ample space for our clothes, and a good refreshment tray. The bathroom was large and clean and quaintly you could use the loo or take a bath and look out over the sea! (they did provide a blind at the window though ! :-) )
I did have cause to mention a couple of problems with the bathroom, quite simple really, the chain on the plug to the basin needed re attaching so that you could get the plug out, and the shower head needed replacing or descaling as it was like standing under a giant tap. Unfortunately though I requested this every morning of our stay it was not rectified.
However hotel itself was very nice. The staff were helpful and friendly. Sometimes the restaurant was quite slow, but food was very good and we always enjoyed it. Balcony rooms are a little noisy at certain times of the day notably work times, but we had our balcony door open every night and after roughly 11.30pm it was quiet. Just one noisy night after people had celebrated the moonlight festival.
All told we had a very nice time at a very nice hotel, I understand that up grading is on-going. These things take time but I can see that what has been done has been done to a very good standard. I could not say if the room we had, had already been up-graded or not but it was clean and totally adequate for our purpose...that we enjoyed our stay.
