Very clean, very friendly, awesome location, great access to the sea, great pool.
I think that people rating this hotel 9/10 have never been on holidays before or used to visit only poor 3* hotels... The only positive about this hotel is location- beautiful natural sea pools and "beach" on the rocks. Also the room was nice and clean and wifi was working fine also on the beach and pool area.
- They ruin the experience of the beach letting in people from the street for 6 Eur cost. Those people put their towels everywhere on the floor around the sun beds, so that you can't move your sun bed around. Also those people steal your shadow from the umbrela and put their towels so close to your sun bed that you can't use the shadow from your umbrella (I attach pictures) That ruins whole pleasure. Makes you worry to leave things on the beach while swimming because you don't want your bags/towels to get stolen by strangers. -The breakfast was one of the worst I have experienced in hotel- very poor choice. When you want something warm- there is only scrambled eggs and bacon. There is also one very unkind man making omelettes on ONE pan- you always have to stand in a queue. There are some cookies and cakes but nothing that you normally would eat for a breakfast. -The management of the hotel in non egsistant. Never saw a manager there. The hotel has a floating trampoline in the sea- I reported in the reception that it is all dirty, all covered in birds guano, which makes you not willing to use it, not speaking about parasites that birds may transmit. I asked the hotel to clean it- they never did through the whole week of my stay.
Clean airy rooms. Good air conditioning. Pool area clean, views at sea were nice. Seawater rock pools were cool.
Food was below average. No parking - at times there were no spaces on the street or adjacent hotel. Very VERY Boring atmosphere. No music anywhere in the hotel. The crowd it attracts is boring - overrun by Germans/ Northern Europeans . Staff are never there on reception. Finished by 7 in the evening and they take a 2 hour break at lunch. Ridiculous! Breakfast was very very poor. We are in Atlantico restaurant the first day for lunch and I got a frozen burger. The wait was 45 minutes. Check in was supposed to be 2pm and our room wasn’t ready to 4pm. Would not stay again.
Wonderful Stay and the gentlemen at the front desk was so Welcoming !! And accommodating and Great Attitude !! Breakfast was awesome , loved the all natural honey from the actual bee hive !! That was amazing !! Lovely place , highly recommend and nice location ...
Everything was awesome !!
breakfast was good. staff was very friendly and helpful
I expected more for the high price the "beach" was always very crowded because the partner hotel was using it as well
