Just got back from a 4 night stay in this hotel. We arrived early, so could not check into our room which is understandable. We were allowed to leave our case in the office behind reception. After being told by the receptionist that the room would be ready in 1 hour, we left for a stroll down the main strip and a drink or two. After an hour and a half we returned (12 noon) to be told that it still wasn't ready, but would be by 14:00. We went out again, returned at 14:30 to be told it was ready apart from pillowcases being put on. We went up and unpacked and had a nap. (We had begun travelling at 03:00 that morning.) The pillowcases eventually arrived at 18:00.
The room (708) was small, dated and had the creakiest bed known to man. The bathroom was small but nice. What saved it was the balcony with the spectacular sea view. The lifts were quite frustrating - very small and irregular.
We stayed on a B&B basis. For me, the hot breakfast was great, but my companion is veggie so ended up with beans on toast each morning. It seemed like we were the only people lacking an all inclusive armband so were paying for our drinks. The beer was lovely and good value, but they did not serve southern comfort, much to my travellers distatse. We did not spend much time in the bar because we were eating out in the evenings but on the few occasions we did go in there regardless of time of day, the same rowdy crowd always seemed to be there. The barstaff were friendly and attentive.
The pool area was small and very shaded so we did not stay out there for more than 10 minutes. All in all, I'd say -
•room with sea view/balcony
•proximity to the amazing beach/main strip
•beer in the bar
•breakfast (for non veggies)
•room not being ready until 6pm
•pool area disappointing
Remember, this is a 3* hotel and although I wouldn't stay there again, I have returned home feeling like I got good value for my money.
