Like staying in a 24 hour nightclub
Posted Jun 7, 2016
This hotel is not all bad - their lunchtime food is delicious, and inexpensive. The swimming pool is ice cold but very refreshing on a hot day. Rooms are very, very clean; all the communal areas too, and especially the pool. The location is fantastic - near some lovely restaurants. There are lots of sunbeds, but only around 1/3 are comfortable ones with padding - you need to get down to the pool by 8:15am to bag your bed.
The reason for the rating is the volume of music around the pool area. If you enjoy your sun holidays with Euro-pop and rock sumping out of the speakers at eardrum-breaking levels, this is the hotel for you! I thought something had gone wrong on the first day when the speakers were cranked up at around 11am to deliver 'Mr Bombastic' and 'I Like to Move it Move It', but after a while another couple asked the music to be turned down, and it was.
For about an hour. Then it was cranked up again.
And so began our five day stay. Every couple of hours, the music, gradually growing louder, would reach the point where I'd read the same sentence in my book seven times and had a thumping headache from the thumping bass. I'd ask them to turn it down, and they would; for a time. Then it would creep back up. But by the second day, our requests were largely ignored. They'd claim they had turned the music down, but it really did not seem like it. Indeed, we were told: ‘everyone loves the music!’ I admit, music is a largely personal affair, but I would guess that rare is

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you appreciated the position of our hotel, the cleaning of your room , the meals in our restaurant while we are sorry that the music nor its intensity in the pool bar was not of your preference. Frequently we are praised for the service of our staff and the response to guests requests. Our hotel offers an inner yard where the swimming pools are and usually our guests discover during stay the appropriate place according to their personal taste either closer to the pool, less or more sunny or quiet. Probably sunbeds further away from the snack bar would have been more to your liking in regards of the proximity to the loudspeakers. It is unfortunate that you did not find your relaxing corner. All your remarks are precious to us, we will share them with our team in order to correct the negative points. We would be delighted, if you decided to offer us a second chance, to welcome you again in the future.
