Although the hotel was lovely, we had a beautiful room overlooking the pool and the staff were excellent, very professional and helpful, there were a few issues.
There is really nothing to do if the weather is bad - no real entertainment and the table tennis and pool tables were stuck down in a childrens' playroom in the spa area! I would mention here that I do not think it appropriate for children to be in the spa area at all - there were times when the pool was more like a childrens' pool and, in my view, spas should be a peaceful place for adults. I know of no other spa where children are playing in the pool!
The outdoor pool was freezing and mainly empty because of it. Surely this could be heated in some way as that would encourage more people use it and therefore make use of the pool bar/restaurant (mind you the one occasion we had food from there, it was of very poor quality- never to be repeated!)
The food was mainly good though not enough variety. Hardly any choice of fruit (same fruit salad appeared at breakfast and dinner!). It all got a bit boring as it seems that the same food was just served up in different ways. Where were the olives -was this Greece? Another issue is that it was never hot - sort of lukewarm was the best you could hope for. On one occasion I had veal which was actually uncooked in the middle. The waiters were made aware of this, but the veal continued to be served.
There was also a problem with noisy people sitting outside in the bar area until the early hours of the morning disturbing residents. However, when we complained about this, the issue was taken very seriously and I believe it was dealt with by security.
We were lucky in that we had a lovely, well placed room with a gorgeous whirlpool bath - I wouldn't have liked to have been at the back of the hotel with the "green wall"
It was our Ruby Wedding Anniversary so the holiday could have been better though it was very relaxing
