we have been staying at the hotel for 4 nights last week in October

First if all I have to say we did enjoy the service at the breakfast! Very good!

Is there a shop on site at the hotel? If so, what does it sell?
Sorry, I just saw your question. There is not a shop per say but there are some glass cases with some nice items for sale. They also sell their own olive oil.

Do you have laundry facilities on-site or nearby?
Hi, I read that your hotel is in a sketchy neighbourhood. Would me travelling on my own be safe in your hotel location? Thanks M

"the beds in our rooms were twin size. "
"We had a side-wing room which was really quiet during nighttime."
"I agree with other reviews that a view over the front gardens to the marina and out to sea, would be best. "
"We had room 251 with a bath and a patio terrace where we sat for cocktails."
"Get a room with a view of the sea. If you get a garden view make sure you ask which garden. The rooms on the first floor have no views."
