9/10 Fantastic

Good hotel

The hotel - Helpful and consideration of most people's, especially of meals of staff, evenings for music, drinks and reception of staff, cleaners to our room. The foods were fine, tidy fine, swimming area was fine. Only fault for me was the the room was in the front of the holel, would rather have one over the swimming area next time. Majority of staff in the reception area were fantastic, I did feel one person during the day was less helpful. But the majority of staff were great, hotel close to the large bus area and good to shops. Also very near to the sea side and easily to walk about.

The best thing about my stay was...

Majority of the holel was very good, great close to seaside and buses, to use again.

Not 4 Star But Would Stay Again

Room small, but adequate for me. Shower drained water very slowly. Had to hire remote for tv, and also, hire tea and coffee making facilities, and more amazingly pool towels, at a cost of 3 EUROS deposit ( refundable) 3 EUROS to hire for duration, and 1 EURO charge every time you wanted to change your pool towel. Food average, pools both ok, but way too salty, half the staff were amazing and helpful, other half ignorant and rude.

Relaxing break

We were slightly disappointed when we arrived to be told we were in an apartment when we had booked the hotel but as it was a short break we just went with it, apartments very basic but clean, if we had been staying longer we would have asked to be changed as we booked the hotel (the apartments have a different name), food was nice, a few choices, tasty and plenty of it, pool area clean and relaxing, overall a good short break.

The best thing about my stay was...

Staff were friendly and everywhere was clean.
