I was anxious to return to this hotel, perhaps not the fanciest or poshiest but since many years I always liked to stay there. The arrival of my new BMW was a wonderful excuse to drive 500 Km and revisit H Solverde again...and I was not disappointed!
I like the place, I asked for rooms with a sea view (and granted), the staff was always polited and nice. I had the pleasure of re-meeting the Chef de Table, an old aquaintance from older times and another hotel were he had worked previously, that remembered me well, and was very nice both dinner and lunch and in the bar. The food was excellent, but I was craving for the cakes the make for breakfast: yes, still as tasty as 30 years ago in the "good old times"...!!!
Having read some reviews complaining about something like a crttv (whatever that is)... My room had a 180 degrees panoramic real-time, true-color, enhanced reality, 5 dimensions (including a lovely smell from sea-spray), and, as a bonus, a full-moon the biggest in years! Yes, I couldn't change channel nor watch the news...but only a fool would!
Definitely coming back preferably in winter and with bad weather...get warm and cosy in the the room with my Sweetheart, a cup of Earl Grey, watching, listening and smelling the storm in the balcony, enjoy that lovely breakfast....
