This hotel is we found suits us very well, its right near the route to the old town, great for evenings and food. I had a problem in our room(an apartment) which meant a trip to the hospital. but I must say the general manager Mr Costa sorted things out to our satisfaction.

We liked the hotel very much. It was a little too far from the beach and old tiwn to make for an easy walk. We had a kitchen unit and the food market was very close. Lovely outdoor pool, unheated, and lovely heated indoor pool complete with full health club.

“This is Europe so bring your own facecloths. Rooms on the poolside are quieter than on the street side. Our mattress was very hard & firm & when we mentioned it at the front desk in only 15 minutes a soft mattress topper was placed on top making the bed very comfortable for us. There are no coffee machines in the rooms & there are no irons or ironing boards so bring clothes that do not wrinkle or pay to have them pressed at the hotel.”
