We stayed for three nights booked by a travel agent, celebrating our sixth anniversary. This hotel had many pros, but the con (the room itself) is what I am rating poor. While the hotel is fine, I expect more for the price and what it looked on the outside. On an island filled with beautiful hotels, I would keep looking - especially for a romantic retreat.
Starting with the Pros:
- Nice pool and Bar
- good breakfast buffet
- Great location to the black sand beach (2 min walk)
- Close to wineries and the only brewing company on the island (5 min by car)
- The Room: it looked beautiful from the outside (it was one of the newer two story rooms at the back of the property). But once inside it was decorated like a bare dorm room with limited and cheap looking furnishings. The set-up of the entire downstairs made no sense. Tiny TV that didn't work, tv cords hanging out because they didn't think to drill a place for the cords, no couch to relax on - just a gloried foot rest with no back - so if you sat on it your back and head rested on the window shutters. A bathroom with no where to hang the shower handheld so you had to set it down to lather your hair and body and pick it up to rinse off. No conditioner.
No better upstairs. Very tiny staircase to the upstairs with nothing but a bed with no headboard and a few lamps, that again, looked like dorm décor. They had two separate beds that they just pushed together for couples but put separate sheets on both so it reminded you were sleeping in two beds.
- Workout room is incredibly dated and worn
Honestly I expected more. I would stay in Fira, after visiting there I think it would have been more our taste. This hotel really needs to address the dorm decorating to up their game.
