5 day visit arriving on the afternoon of 5th July and departing early doors 10th July. What makes the hotel is the staff and the situation - right across the road from Bay 2 in Palmanova. A beautful sandy beach with clean, clear, warm seas. The food is very good, and we are pretty fussy! yes simple stuff like nuggets for the kids, but also tasty meats and wonderful fish. The grilled king prawns are to die for and plentiful and were a wonderful surprise for me as I do not eat meat. Breakfast was very good too. Drinks on tap, no queueing for stuff in restaurant or bar as it is a small hotel and even at full capacity no hassle and all was absolutely fine. All the staff are lovely and pleasant at all times. Yes its a bit careworn and not as clean as other hotels we have stayed in (think dusty) but the bathrooms are clean, the shower simple to operate and plentiful supplies of hot water. Beds are a bit hard but we liked this and slept amazingly well. The only thing that tainted it slightly for me were some foul mouthed young british ladies (I use the terminolgy 'ladies' losely!) at the pool bar. Pool is small but clean and warm but rail needs fixing. We prefer the beach anyway. Olaf the pool barman is lovely (the son of the manageress) and fun. The restaurant, bar staff and reception are always pleasant and smiling. Would we return to this hotel when in reality we normally favour 4 and 5* establishments? Most certainly a resounding YES. I would also return as a lone female for a single holiday if the opportunity arose! lovely little hotel and lovely area! Oh and the buses are frequent, making localities such as palma etc very easily accessible.
