On arriving at the hotel at 03.30,(after a long transfer)our passports were taken and then we were informed that we were going in a taxi to an apartment because our room wouldnt be ready until about 12 noon,a taxi would bring us back in the morning for breakfast,we were very cross and upset by this,when we got to the apartment the taxi driver left us outside the wrong place and assured us it was right place, the key didnt fit,we managed to find the right entrance, which was in darkness.this ruined the start of our holiday,there was no explanation or apology from anyone, having said this, we managed to have a good holiday, as the hotel was very nice, clean and the waiting staff were very attentive
I have just got back from a week stay at this hotel and it got off on a terrible start. We had arrived at the hotel after a full 11 and a half hours of travelling so my family and I were very tired and all we wanted was to lie down in our beds in the hotel room and get a good night sleep. However, this didn't happen because when we eventually got to the hotel at 3:30am, we were informed there was no room for us and had to stay in an apartment "100 metres" down the road. They shoved us in a taxi where we were driven to the apartment which the driver couldn't even find and left us to it. The next morning, they told us we had to walk to the hotel with our two 20kg suitcases and it took us half an hour to find the hotel. Once we arrived for the second time, we were then told there was still no room and we wouldn't have a room for another 3 hours or so. Bearing in mind in this apartment there was no food or water and we hadn't had anything since before we got on our flight. We then stated that we hadn't eaten and this sort of thing shouldn't happen and the HORRIBLE WOMAN AT RECEPTION who was around 40-50 and had blonde hair then argued back at us saying this always happens in a lot of hotels. She then finally agreed to get us some breakfast yet we still had to pay for our drinks! This woman was very rude and she is a terrible woman to be representing the hotel. After the tough start and we got settled in our room it was a flawless week.
Situated very close to the seafront. The apartment was very good value and the personal touch applied. In the restaurant, quite a bit of the food was cooked to your requirements, and considering it is a small hotel, the choices were very good. The apartment suited our needs, the beds comfy, including the sofa beds which suited adult use. The location would suit using it as a base for touring. We used the local buses which were quite cheap and regular. There isn't any evening entertainment in the hotel, apart from a t..v. Short walk to the seafront bars, and some entertainment. Sunbeds poolside are very hard, and fairly expensive on the beach.
