  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

a relic of the past, neglected hotel & in bed need of some immediate renovations & updates. I had booked through expedia a room with a sea view only to be told upon my arrival that all rooms with sea view had been given to another group of hotel guests, when I complained to the management I was told that I could leave the hotel and go find another one on my own. Obviously I stayed but never to return. Most of the rooms are over 10 minutes away from the reception area and only accessible through a labyrinth of indoor-outdoor up and down concrete steps. A very bad experience all around.

Overall I enjoyed my stay. If I needed to say something about the cons, it would be I wish I would have known that the pools, restaurants, and spa were not open before I arrived, because I would have just stayed somewhere else. As a person traveling solo, I was bored. (It was just the start of the tourist season). Being close to the beach was really nice and relaxing. Also, there wasn't a shuttle to the hotel, but the city bus takes you directly there from the HER airport for 1.70 Euros; not bad at all. I am sure if I visit in the summer, my experience will be great. I would come back.
