Booked a last minute, 10 day stay at the Astra for 2 through Travel Republic and have just returned.
I fully expected to be disappointed in my request for a good sea view room it being such a late booking but was overjoyed that we had 'bagged' the famous room 55!!!
What joy! This room has 2 balconies AND a HUGE sun terrace attached and the views from it are truly amazing. The whole bay is a spectacular sight and BTW the sunrise is well worth getting up to see.
I did this a few mornings.....with a breakfast cuppa in hand. Fantastic to see the changing colours as the sun rises.
I had been to the hotel some 12 years earlier and there is now some changes including a new accommodation block, a bar/cafe with great staff, low prices for snacks and enormous portions.
Across the road is a mini golf facility and play area..........VERY popular with visiting children and their parents who can have a quiet drink whilst their kiddies are occupied.
What hasn't changed is the lovely family who run it and their obvious dedication to looking after their guests in the best way possible.
I have read some of the previous recent reviews and cannot understand some of the comments as both myself and my other half agreed that we have never stayed in any place where towels and sheets are changes so often and the cleaning staff are so thorough..... Those ladies never stop from cleaning both the pools ( yes, there are two) mopping down all the tile walkways and steps before moving on to the rooms.
Worth their weight in gold.....in my opinion!
All the staff were great though and I cannot fault the customer service in any area of the hotel.
All in all, it was a great stay and couldn't be faulted in any way.
Well done to all the Astra people, you made two people in dire need of a restful holiday very happy indeed.
