Arrived at 3am to find they'd left the restaurant open so we could have a small snack and tea/coffee .. a nice touch and a good start to the holiday.
The front of the hotel leads directly onto the beach.. the rear of the hotel faces a busy main road. The rooms are small but carpeted with comfortable beds.. a 32in wall mounted TV with all the BBC and ITV channels and quiet air-con made for a very pleasant stay.
The week we were there the guests were mostly..if not all Brits and towels were out bagging the best sunbeds at 7.30am so there you go - it's not just the Germans!
Free wi-fi which worked. . most of the time.. well.. what do you expect for nothing? some places charge for that.
A well set out dining room with lots of 2-seat tables.. food was varied. ..and hot! the manager was often seen checking the temperature of the food..drinks was self-service..was nice to help yourself to bottles of beer from the fridge.
What's wrong with this hotel? not much . .
Yes the drinks and cocktails are weak.. mostly juice and ice cubes.. easily remedied - just get a measure of spirits on its own and pour it in!
The abundance of "tips" boxes around the place.. At the bar.. fair enough... at the entrance to the restaurant..ok... another one at the show cooking section in the restaurant.. come on! I'm not mean-spirited (I even gave the cleaner a few Euros) It was just a "tips" box too far!
Check out was 12 mid-day and our coach pick-up was 11.30pm! but we could still use all the hotel facilities.. meals.. drinks etc. This is a really nice hotel.. they go out of their way to ensure you have a nice holiday.
It says on the front of the hotel that it's a 3 star hotel - and that's exactly what it is. . but it's one of the best 3 star hotels you'll ever stay in.
Would I recommend this hotel? most definitely.
