It was one of those places that we had looked at for many years and never stayed there, our curiosity got the better of us and we did it...
It is indeed an experience, quirky, interesting and adventurous and is what it is, we just did bed and breakfast, the place is very clean and the rooms are cleaned and bed linen changed every day, couldn't fault the care taken, we turned up one day when they were mid cleaning and the attention to detail was great.
The breakfast is pretty much standard in that it was a mix of continental style with cold meats fruit, cereal yoghurt etc, a hot breakfast consists of bacon, European style sausage, scrambled boiled and fried eggs, fresh bread and rolls, jams etc. depends upon your requirements but was plenty for our minimal needs from a breakfast.
The pool area is small and quirky, but clean, very closed in and a little cramped when busy, although we did not eat the evening meal at the hotel, we always ate out, but one evening we did fancy taking in the entertainment outside at the poolside / patio bar area, we sat pretty near to the stage and had a good view, however, as I smoke, I was swiftly asked to move to the actual bar area to do so, this is a small area in front of the bar in an area about 15feet square and has no view of the entertainment, we didn't bother again, the bar area is enclosed and therefore smoke is far more likely to offend people than being in the open air in the entertainment area, I have respect for non smokers and would never sit near anyone that didn't, but heh, that's the hotel rules as daft as it seems.
Anyway, the staff were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough to please, to the extent that on our first night we were woken by a loud engine type noise from above our bathroom which started about 0230 and went on till 0830, didn't sleep a wink, when I reported the fact to Irena on reception, she investigated it, found that the hotel boiler timer had been changed, she got it reset and we slept superbly for the rest of our holiday, so hats off to Irena and the staff.
The location is superb, minutes to bars, restaurants and shops and places of interest including the harbour and the Tombs of the Kings.
We always feel that you should take all the positives from a holiday and not let anything spoil it, we did exactly that and had a fantastic time, thanks to the staff.....
