4/10 Fair

Not a 4 star experience
This is not a 4 star hotel! Despite having a nice pool (with few sun lounges) and being in a good location, the additional costs of a kettle, iron & pool towels is mean-spirited & not consistent with a 4 star hotel. The limited, inflexible, unappetizing breakfast is also poor. In a country that grows millions of oranges, why would you offer guests orange drink? Horrible, Other reviews have also mentioned the limited breakfast. Our hotel room wasn’t cleaned - when my wife complained, the female receptionist argued with her, & the cleaner herself insisted she’d cleaned it, despite the head house keeper establishing clearly that the room hadn’t been cleaned. The female receptionist overcharged me for the per day hire of a safety deposit box; while the male receptionist was polite & tried to rectify the payment, the female receptionist sought me out in my room & personally objected to the fact that I was trying to retrieve my money because (in her words) “it was only a few Euros”. This sort of personal attack on guests is unacceptable & unprofessional. I asked for a quiet room and was given a room above reception and next to the bar / entertainment area. It was advertised as parking on site but in fact you just parked in a public space wherever you could find parking. Very disappointing.

6/10 Good

A bit overpriced for what it is.
A solo stay for short holiday - the hotel is nice, very clean, with friendly and helpful staff. Cons - It is a bit more expensive that other hotels that offer much the same, so it depends on personal preference. I prefer self catering so for me this it's unneccesarily costly, and I was shocked to learn that you have to pay (as a guest) to use the gym, sauna and steam room, as well as other things, such as hiring a kettle/towels. Pros - lovely pool area and late night services for food/drinks (10pm). Close to ammenities.
