Palmyra Beach hotel although claims to be 4 star, but in reality this is 3 Star hotel at its best!
Its an average 3 star hotel, which provides basic rooms and facilities.
However, the value for money is not bad, as the hotel is quite reasonably priced.
On the positive side, the majority of the staff are very helpful, and trying to assist. Are they able to is another matter .... :)))
There is a lovely back garden, really nice patio and bar at the back of the hotel, which makes a difference. Nice to sit there in the evening and have a drink or two.
The bar attendant were brilliant, very helpful and client orientated. Alex and Mario.
the hotel is conveniently located from transport links and the beach is few minutes away. But what quite few reviews failed to point out is that the beach is on a wild side. Not on a convenient side at all. No sunbeds or umbrellas or toilets, just one lonely changing boot and its quite pebbly.
To get to a more civilized sandy beach, you need to walk for about 20 mins or take a cab, which will cost you about 5 to 7 pounds. The nearest really nice beach is Balux beach. Which has really nice sunbeds, restaurants, cafeterias, decent changing facilities and is sandy with crystal clear warm water.
Breakfast at the hotel is a bit basic, but there is some choice, so won't go away hungry.
All in all its a good value for money, but be prepared that this is a 3 star hotel.
Please also note that hotel is very close to a noisy road. So, unless you keep the door of your balcony shut, you want be able to sleep or relax.
Would like to thank the staff of the hotel for their hospitality and helpfulness. Especially the restaurant and bar staff.
