22 year old couple just returned from a brilliant one week stay at this hotel. The area it is located in is quiet, but we were actually pleased about it. 5 minutes walk from a beautiful little cove and beach with a wonderful seafood place (i really recommend you try their sardines!). Hotel is about a 10-15 minutes walk from the marina where there are a few more places to eat and you can get a cruise around the caves and coastline from there which we loved. Will cost you about €6 - €9 to get to the Old Town or New Town by taxi, which we didnt feel was too bad and there you can find some good shops and restaurants and have a good night out in various bars.
We went for full breakfast which was your usual continental breakfast; bread, fruit, cheeses, cold meats, pastries and cereals. You could request eggs (made to your specific requirements), sausages and bacon which we did every morning as they were fantastic! The restaurant for lunch and dinner was fairly priced and the food was pretty good. I must say the restaurant staff and general hotel staff were fantastic, extremely hospitable and friendly, dealing with every request promptly with a smile on their faces.
There were 2 outdoor pools and one indoor, the indoor one was in a pretty badly lighted room and usually empty. There was also an indoor jacuzzi which to be fair was pretty poor in quality with half of the jets not working. The outdoor pools were not very big but they were nice enough and you could always find a nice spot to chill and soak up some sun.
The rooms were a very good size, with a very nice spacious balcony and bathroom. We got the queen bed room which dissapointingly was actually two single beds pushed together, one of the very few complaints about this hotel. There was also nothing in the bedroom mini fridge.
Wonderful relaxing beach holiday with some great nights out on the town. Quad biking up the mountains was a fun activity as well as the caves cruise and there are a few water parks to visit. All in all, Hotel Maritur provided us a perfect break, especially for such a good price! Special compliments again to the hotel staff, wonderful people!
