We arrived at 08:00 am and our room wasn't ready so the manager upgraded us to an apartment, which was a great start! The apartment is very spacious: kitchen (with cooking facilities and fridge), living room area with 2 sofas and tv, big bedroom with a four poster bed and cupboards, and an en-suite shower and toilet room.
The wi-fi was excellent, the staff were SUPER friendly and helpful, the food was delicious, breakfast was great (a buffet with your choice of eggs, pancakes, cheese, several types of fruit, beans, sausages, fruit juices, tea, coffee, two types of bread, butter, jams, lots of food and one can eat as much as they want.
The hotel has a great bar scene and lively feel about it, especially when I compare it to another hotel in the capital.
Many restaurants a 15 minutes' walk away, in "The Strip", including a not too bad Patisserie.
The stunning beach is a 5 - 10 minutes' walk.
This hotel is superb value and for a 3 start it is underrated. I met lovely people there who stayed at the standard rooms (which look great by the way), and they all were complementary about their rooms and the hotel.
Strongly recommended, really great hotel, we enjoyed our stay.
