Myself and my daughter actually landed in this hotel by mistake my daughter had actually booked and paid to stay in the puerto illessa down the road and we pointed this out to the rep and we were practically called liars, its a nice enough hotel but i have walking dificulties and there's no lift to the upper levels and no porter to help with bags so i had to try and drag myself and my bags up 2 flights of stairs and the receptionist who showed us to our room just walked on looking exasperated that i was pretty slow.
rooms were small barely room for me and my daughter to move around, pool not great really just basic and we just lay in the gardens but a good point is you cant get much closer to the sea than there its practically at the back door. mostly all german people staying when we stayed. breakfast pretty basic too..hope you like croissants.
we ate out every night, but all in all it was a nice holiday but there are nicer places to stay like the hotel we had initially paid for. we complained when we got home and only got offered 100 euro compensation for the travel companies error and the price difference. rip off big time.
i went back then in 2008 and stayed in the windmill apts - so much better.
