    Not a 5 star hotel

    Disappointing but worth the money. First of all this is not a 5* hotel. Beds very comfortable though and we got upgraded, as VIP gold member so that was nice. The amenities in the room are limited (only shower gel, no conditioner or body lotion). Only 2 towels per guest (one large one medium, no small hand towels). We had to request a tea boiler and iron, which is usually already in room. Fitness center was closed even at 6pm. Was not made aware of that upon reservation or checkin. The pool was much smaller than looks in pictures, there was no pool attendant and couldn’t find the pool towels. I you actually have to request them at the Spa, there was no indication for it, i had to ask the gentlemen that brought some food by the pool. Windows are thin and not sound proof, could hear all the street noise. The worst part was the 10€ Food Voucher i was given at checkin. I was not told any specific conditions to use it. I ordered in room appetizers that totaled 7,5€, made sure I checked with the person on the phone that i could use it on it and they approved, checked again upon delivery and they confirmed again. Upon checkout, the reception first took the voucher and told me i was all set, and then as I was waiting in the lobby came back to tell me I actually had to pay, and that it was only valid on 15euros minimum purchases. I told then repeatedly in good faith i had not been made aware of these specific conditions, but they ignored it. Not guest orie

    Location is good, hotel is older but well maintained, walls are very thin. Definitely not a 5 star as claimed but a good 3.5-4 star.

    A Solid 3.5 Star Hotel Experience

    The room - Spacious with comfy bed but NOT soundproofed at all. You can hear the planes flying past day and night, and the shower next door. The toilet is separate to the shower but hand soap is only available in the shower room - rather unhygienic. Breakfast - Good selection of food. Although all guests are asked to wear plastic gloves, which is environmentally unfriendly, everyone can still touch your tableware. Would prefer a staff to handle the food during covid. Limited seating in the courtyard. Pools - Both very small. Pictures look much bigger than they are. No sanitiser available to clean sun loungers between uses. Car park - Only a handful of spaces available which fill up quickly and you have to walk up to the reception in person and ask for the gate to be opened which is quite inconvenient. Location - distance wise it is close to the old town, but you have to walk through some poorly lit, uneven, dodgy alleyway to reach it. No mini-mart/kiosk nearby. Reception staff - Disappointing! One refused to open the car park gate because she couldn’t see a space from her camera. But having walked up to the hotel from the car park myself, I know there’s a free space. Upon check in, a €10 credit for food&drink per day was offered to us as a incentive but no T&Cs were mentioned at any point. At check out, the credit was not honoured until we asked for the hotel manager. Very typical!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Very clean and the staff were very attentive. We arrived very early in the morning and the lovely gentleman said that he would try to ensure that our room was ready earlier than the check in time and when we returned just after 1pm the room was ready and waiting for us which was very welcome.

    Nice modern hotel in good location

    Hotel design on outside not so pretty but inside is modern and luxurious. The staff very nice, check in quick and easy, room large and comfortable. View of harbour is a partial view and it is not the prettiest part of harbour so don't pay extra for that. It was a short walk to all the things I wanted to do. Easy parking. Breakfast was very good with many options but I didn't like that they required plastic gloves. This is incredibly wasteful. I don't know if this is a hotel policy or government policy during pandemic but I know as a medical professional that nobody is catching covid from food at buffets. Requiring hand sanitizer before guests use the buffet should be sufficient.
