A charming hotel located right next to the beach.
We had a sea view room which I would recommend. The other rooms face the street which appealed less to us. The rooms themselves are bright and beautifully furnished and included aircon, mini bar, tv and telephone, free wifi (we found the best signal in reception or by the pool). Safety deposit boxes are available to hire but these are not in the room and remain next to reception instead. There are cleaners everywhere and as a result the hotel is utterly spotless.
The pool area is small but is clean has plenty of sunbeds.
All of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The bar staff and reception staff in particular.
The bar is open from about 11am until 11pm. There is an extensive cocktail list and the prices are in keeping with local bars (ie they don't overcharge because you are in the hotel)
We stayed on a half board basis. Breakfast is ok but a little repetitive. There are the usual pastries etc as per a continental breakfast, a toaster and many varieties of egg to choose from (scrambled, fried, boiled). Dinner was a bit hit and miss. Some nights were considerably better than others. This was disappointing as the restaurant is clearly capable of serving lovely food as demonstrated by its popularity with the local people. At the start of the our holiday the service in the restaurant was questionable - we weren't offered drinks, plates took a long time to be cleared whilst the waiters appeared to be tripping over themselves to help guests who had walked in for dinner off the street, we felt as hotel guests we were getting a raw deal. We took this up with the general manager and these issues were soon resolved. The restaurant has a lovely terrace which looks out to sea.
I had two treatments in the spa which were easy to book through reception, good value for money and very relaxing! I didn't use the fitness room but stuck my head round the door and saw a treadmill, rower, bike and several free weights.
The hotel is a short walk from both the old and new towns. We much preferred the character of the old town with is cobbled streets, Cliffside bars and quirky shops.
