Nice hotel close to the beach with huge pool
Posted Oct 2, 2016
Well, during our stay it was my birthday and the hotel gave me a bottle of bubbly and yummie chocolate cake. A very nice thought. So how can I say anything bad about the hotel! Truthfully it was a very good hotel, not too fancy but modern, lots of facilities, very clean and very helpful staff. Prices for drinks and snacks very good. The beach is very close and stretches for miles - a great walk. It is about a mile from town but taxi's are affordable or it's a reasonable walk. The weather in late September was fantastic with temps around 25-28deg C with clear sky every day.
A couple of downers. The a la carte restaurant was poor. We booked a table for 7.30 but were asked if we could do 8.00. Agreed but when we arrived there were only two other tables occupied. Ok, not a problem but the hour wait between starter and main was inexcusable. The meal was OK but not great. We ate in town most nights where there are some very good restaurants.
The other slight complaint is that the full information on the hotel facilities (gym, sauna etc) seemed lacking. I only realised there was a Sauna near the end of our stay. Also info on tours and external activities were kept in a book at reception. It would be good to have info in your room to mull over rather than propping up the counter getting in everyone's way.
On the up side again, this is a pleasant hotel for the sunseeker and chiller. We would definitely stay here again
