This is far from a 4 star hotel. As many have said you need to pay for every little item. WiFi 2€, fridge 1€, safe, spa 4€, and so on. No kettles in the rooms, lucky if you get soap, rooms cleaned in <10mins and not to a good standard. The food is poor. Some will disagree. Sure, but its...

Good points: rooms are a very nice size, we found the beds comfortable even although we had to ask for extra pillows ( even then they were poor quality), very clean throughout and the cleaners did a great job. Staff very...

Good hotel, good stuff, but poor food variety on breakfast and dinner. Lunch is pretty good with seafood. Rooms are simply decorated. Room is cleaned every day. Internet is not free. The majority is old people.

Reception: My boyfriend and I stayed from 10/9 till 19/9. Reception when we arrived was poor. Barely got a hello and we were given no information about mealtimes, safe deposit box, entertainment etc. Tourist tax was €14 in total but this is not a hotel charge. We organised the safe the next day and paid €20 plus €10 deposit. We...

Nice hotel in great location. Short walk to the beach via shops and residential areas. Drinks at bar very reasonable price with excellent bar staff. We dined in the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. Good selection of food if you're not a fussy eater. A few negatives on hotel 1. Hiring a fridge seriously it's 2016. 2. Tourist tax...
