Good location great value nice people
Organised an airport transfer but no one came to collect, luckily there was a night guard who could still check us in and we did get a free upgrade. Also extending the stay was very easy. Location is good very near the beach and room condition was great also. Would recommend

Good hotel but lacking in some areas
Nice enough hotel just a short walk to the centre of the town. First night there was a loud buzzing from electricity box that kept me up all night. That was sorted the next day. I had 2 VIP Gold offers on my account. They failed to provide either of them. Didn’t receive a bottle of sparkling wine on checkin. Indeed they charged me €2 for a bottle of water. I was also entitled to free late checkout. They refused unless I paid €25 (so there was obviously availability). The shower seems to run out of hot water by 9am. So I couldn’t shower before checking out. It’s ok for the price, but might be worth ignoring any Gold benefits offered (you won’t get them) and paying a bit more to stay somewhere else.
