This review relates to the Apartments, not to the hotel proper. The apartment we occupied was satisfactory, albeit very 'tired'. The rooftop pool was a real bonus with superb views out to sea. But I would ask the hotel to consider seriously their policy of allowing dogs and cats into the apartments. Dog owners need apartments too, of course. But I think it would be advisable for designated apartments to be reserved for owners of pets. Our sofa smelt badly of dog, so much so we stopped using it. Luckily there hadn't been a cat in the apartment recently, as I am asthmatic and highly allergic to cat hair: I could have been very ill. I think a duvet rather than a (rather coarse) blanket and counterpane would be preferable as bedding. I can't remember when I last stayed where a duvet was not offered. My real problem with the two apartment blocks, however, was the noise - I don't recognise it as music - that was played at high volume outside the Irish Bar every day from midday to midnight (if you were lucky). The same 'afro-beat' music day in, day out, on a loop, unchanging. It made it impossible to enjoy a quiet drink, read or conversation on the apartment balcony, and seemed to be played for the enjoyment of the young staff with no regard for the occupants of the apartments, generally families and retired couples, none of whom appreciated it. Everyone complained to the management but they simply said there was nothing they could do. Even when the police were called the music was immediately played as loud as ever once they left. More than anything this constant loud noise ruined what should have been an excellent stay. I believe the hotel and apartments have recently come under new ownership. I hope they can restore them to the five-star standard they once may have been. If they do, I shall return. If not, never.

Dear Guest, We thank you very much for your constructive comments that contribute to the continuous improvement of our services. We regret that your stay has not been the perfect experience we seek to offer our guests. Regretfully the stores beneath the apartments are private rentals with licenses granted by the city that allow business to have entertainment with music playing. Whenever there are noise complaints coming from any of the businesses after legal hours our security staff heads over to assess the situation and if necessary call the Police. We would like to assure you that your other comments will be taken into account and we will do our best to improve wherever we can. The feedback from our guests is of utmost importance to us. we look forward for the chance to welcome you again, hopefully soon. Kindest regards, Sílvia Cruz

Was here for two nights mini break half board, the breakfast was great however dinner wasn’t good at all I had a really bad stomach bug after having their steak in the restaurant and it was the worst food my partner & I ever had presentations was great though. Rooms are great everything there except box of tissues & a kettle. Special thanks to Thanu, Veronica & George in the restaurant they were great but sorry to say the food let us down 😫. The spa & reception staff was great. Dinner on the both nights were tasteless & awful. Even paid for breakfast & dinner most of the stuff in the menu we have to pay additional €7.50 which was not what I expected from a 5 star hotel.

With all the madness going on in the world it was nice to find a clean hotel with all staff doing all they could to make you feel safe at this time WELL DONE. Also the quality and choice for breakfast was very good (little tip if you want an omlette or poached eggs just ask your server when seated )
