There isn't a free breakfast. The intro is wrong. It's €17 per person. Our triple room was small, dirty bath and ill-fitting plug. We also faced onto a demolished building. But on the plus side loads of towels, nice and warm. Small pool and plunge pool is more suited to the kids. Small gym, sauna and steam room is fine but nothing fancy. Restaurant looks lovely but we never ate there. Staff are helpful. Tell them if you've parked your car in the car park. You pay the hotel less than the machine charges and they give you a pass to get in and out.

Beautiful. Worth the €160 for the Jacuzzi room. Extremely large with a large TV at the end of the bed if that's your thing. Jacuzzi bath enormous with chromatherapy ( that's colour changing under water lights to you and me 😂) air bubbles and some water jets. A heater kept the water hot although we think the plug leaked as we had to fill it up again part way through. Bed was enormous and very comfortable. Soft and crisp sheets. Lots of shampoo, conditioner , toothbrush ,comb etc lots of nice towels and two fluffy white robes Plenty of storage a walk in shower big enough for two ( oohh err 🤭) There was a safe in the room Breakfast was good with a selection of hot and cold food . We got a discount from €16 to €14 by reserving it at reception. The hotel is in a bit of a strange place with building works all around it.It seems to be located in a residential area. Ideal if you like to look out at 🏗️🤭. But it is two blocks from the Beach We were then in January for one night and paid €162 euro excluding breakfast. Plus the dreaded €2 tourist tax The only problem we had was that it was very warm even with the thermostat turned all the way down. Great hotel. Funny location in a semi residential area .
