The situation of the hotel is superb set in a very quiet bay with wonderful walks along the promenade with plenty of watering holes and a picturesque small harbour.. The new swimming pool and sun decking area are very good. The pool is freezing - colder than the sea,. There were no towels provided and so we had to purchase our own.
The rooms are very basic and need refurbishing. We had a good view from our room but many rooms would have their view obscured by the trees.
My dated hairdryer (the old tube type attached to the wall burnt my fingers and hand when drying my hair. I did ask for a different type but nothing was forthcoming. Take your own shower gel and body lotion as this is not provided. We had to buy our own.
They do provide shampoo
The food was only average and hardly any variety. We arrived back late on two occasions from a coach trip (not our fault) and although the dining room was supposed to be open for at least another hour, much of the heated trays were emptied and half of the food bar closed off. What was left was pretty inedible.
Some of the staff are very pleasant but there are a few that could benefit from some people skills tuition.
The guitar player in the evening was very good and easy on the ear.
The new beach restaurant is in a lovely position but service was very slow. Maryana was very helpful and pleasant and did all she could for us. I don't know how they would cope if they were busy. Burgers were poor but salads were good.
I hope they will improve in a few areas and that would make it more of a special place to stay.
Door closers would be an asset to prevent the banging of doors (some people do not think about others when leaving their rooms)
