Stayed for 3 nights. Smooth check in, safety deposit 3euros per night plus 10 euros returnable deposit. Room very comfortable (427) overlooking the pool. Sun in the afternoon, worth that wee bit extra. They are called sunset rooms. Only let down was the food. There was plenty of it but unfortunately as other reviewers have said was not warm enough....

The room was spotless and very comfortable , with towel change and bed made every day. The staff were very friendly...

The Room was fine although the bathroom was compact. The Room was cleaned on a regular basis. We only booked for Breakfast which was plentiful. The Hotels location...

Although this is only a 2 star hotel it is a good 2 star. The hotel is very well located near the beach, shops and bars, public transport to other localities is also close by. The hotel is kept clean inside and out and the rooms are serviced every day. The beds are changed weekly. The restaurant has a choice...
