Unable to decide where to go this year, so we decided to return to the Olympic Palace. Best decision we made. We arrived at reception to be warmly welcomed. Had previously emailed the hotel to explain we were returning and asked if possible to be in the same room (523). As the hotel was full, we were asked if 519 would be ok, it was. Paid extra for sea view when booking, well worth it. Arrived at about 3pm, that evening a selection of fruit and bottle of wine was delivered with compliments, lovely touch. The hotel has had a lick of paint on outside and gardens/crazy golf has been spruced up. Pool towels are now supplied in rooms for use. Plenty of choice during mealtimes. Restaurant staff always pleasant. I like the pool area but prefer the beach across the road, bit more peaceful for me. There are beds on the upper part of the beach that are for hotel use only but I preffered to pay €4 for a bed nearer the sea. Tip- invest in a pair of beach shoes ( available in supermarket) as first few steps consist of pebbles, then sand. Lovely warm water and a lovely breeze. Glory Days/FBI bar our only stop at night, the staff are brilliant, thank you once again for welcome (diolch yn fawr). lovely relaxed holiday, we'll be back.
