This hotel charged for everything. Even the air-con had a timer on it. The breakfast area was stinking hot because they don't turn on the air-con until the minute people arrive. Then it goes off again (with the lights) at the crack of 10am, regardless of whether guests are still there. You even have to pay for internet, (2 coin-operated units in the lobby, but no USBs for downloading photos etc), pool towels and safety deposit box (at 3.5 Euros per day)!
The post-mix coke and tonic were both flat. The "bald barman" basically said bad luck. He only replaced a drink using a can of fresh tonic etc because the boss was nearby and heard what happened.
We thought we had booked a double room via the internet, but we got two single beds pushed together, and made up as one. (The booking form did say "double or twin room").
Yes it was very windy. This was a negative around the pool later in the afternoon, even though it was hot across town. Town was a good 15 minutes walk away, but there was a varity of small resaturants and two supermarkets nearby.
The English manager is a nice woman, and the staff were very helpful.
