Give it a miss

2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 Jul 2022
We were booked in for 4 nights and had to find something else after the first.
The hotel itself is very traditional and quite beautiful but it has seen better days.
We arrived late because our flight was delayed and were met by 2 teenagers with whom we couldn't communicate. They didn't even check us in.
We were shown to our room which was very stuffy and quite smelly. The sheets were dirty, the air-conditioning didn't work and there were no light bulbs in the bedside lamps. The bathroom was ok but it needed a good clean too.
We asked to change rooms and although the bathroom was better and the air conditioning worked, the sheets were still stained and there were no lightbulbs in the lamps. The room was also stuffy and very noisy so we couldn't open any windows to get some fresh air.
To make matters worse there are 2 night clubs very close by popular with the tourists and the noise coming from them is overwhelming. We were unable to sleep/rest from the noise. It stopped around 3 am.
The breakfast was good and the rooftop is lovely. The beach is very close by but it wasn't worth the stress of not being able to rest. WE found something else the next morning and checked out immediately.
Internet was also very difficult to access unless you were in the lobby (small area) or on the terrace. For anyone with mobility issues, the stairs and steep and narrow and there is no lift.
The hotel leaves a lot to be desired. Not worth it.

We received a warm welcome and great service from the staff throughout our stay. Clean room with a comfortable bed and a spacious bathroom and shower. Enjoyed the tasty food and cosy ambience of the hotel. Very polite and helpful staff!! The splendid view from the terrace and the rustic design of the hotel were refreshing- set it apart from the others! Would definitely recommend!
