Just had a weeks stay here and we loved it. Great location, close to everything but very very noisy at night until 4am when all the music stops and the revellers return to their hotels. However, close the double glazed doors and sleep like a baby! The staff are all helpful and man the receptions all night. The room we...

This hotel is way overpriced for what you get. A truly disappointing experience. Bathroom had a bad smell that seemed to keep re emerging. I was very unpleasant to be awoken at 8am in a room that was not dark enough for sleep. Also the noise is a major sleep hindrance up to 3 or 4am.

excellent location for the beach, restaurants, bars and square of the oldtown. While located on a busy street which was noisy in the evenings we slept relatively easily (if you are a very light sleeper or have trouble getting to sleep with some background noise then this is not for you!). Room very clean and cleaners in daily. Front door...

Best of both worlds sitting in the hub of the old town we were concerned about sleep but it was not a problem at all. Staff are so friendly and helpful. We booked a standard room but upgraded to 1 with sun terrace wen booking in. Was xtra but well worth it

Staff was very friendly. Right in the middle of town where all the action is. This is a 2 star hotel and we expected less but were happily surprised.

A little gem hidden amongst the shops, bars and restaurants! The Polana is a small, modern hotel, only 2 minutes from Fisherman's Beach. Our room was cleaned everyday and are well presented. Although the hotel is on the street with bars and restaurants the rooms are relatively quiet. The french doors of each room are double glazed and shut out...

I stayed in this hotel for ten nights in May 2012, my room was spotlessly clean and was serviced every day. Although this hotel is located in the busiest part of the town it is surprisingly quiet once the double glazed patio doors are closed. The hotel does not have its own pool, but that's not a problem, as one...
