Stayed here for just under a week. Hotel is very nice, views over the port are amazing. Staff were very helpful and accomodating. The rooms and the bathrooms are also pleasant.
However, the week that I stayed, they had a LOT of problems with the water and the sewage- type smell in certain parts of the hotel. This included the water in my bathroom turning brown, smelling unpleasant and on two occassions stopping flowing altogether. Unfortunate as I was half way through my shower covered in soap!!
The corridor that takes you through to the breakfast area has a BAD 'sewage' smell which remained throughout my visit and I was not the only guest to run through there, holding my nose.
I have just returned and been to the Dr. today for an upset stomach (not eaten for 3 days in Spain as feeling too poorly) which I attribute to drinking the tap water (brushing my teeth) in the bathroom first few days of my stay before it had turned brown. The water was VERY heavily chlorinated at times at the start of my visit.
This experience is unfortunate because it spoiled an otherwise very enjoyable stay at what is unquestionably a very nice hotel as other reviews will testify. That said, a quick google search when I got back showed that the problem with the water would be appear to be a recurring rather than an isolated incident. I hope that the hotel reads this review and acts upon it because this water issue is spoiling an othewise nice place to stay and I would not return unless I was absolutely convinced that the problem had been solved permanently.
If you do decide to go, ONLY drink (and brush your teeth in) bottled water and you'll probably be fine.
