Stayed for what was initially meant to be three days and then extended to six in February. The hotel has recently changed owners and there are lots of improvements going on, including to furnishings, decor and the general offering (including dinner service on premises, which is great given that not many other options are available in the immediate vicinity during the winter months - there are also plans for wifi to extend throughout the hotel, rather than internet being available through one cable in the room). Staff could also not have been more helpful and friendly in suggesting places to go, what to do, where to eat.
The location is excellent, in a quiet semi-residential area, with a short walk to a fantastic long beach and short driving distances to shops and sights. Views from the second floor terraces are of pine trees and the sea, which was ideal for the days we didn't feel like doing much more than read.
Rooms do need an update, especially for furnishings, but this seems to be ongoing. It's also worth noting that the kitchenette is small and quite basic, although was also to be reviewed. Even without the improvements, we wouldn't hesitate to go back.
