7/10 Good

18 June 2019

Lovely hotel but housekeeping and room were well below standard expected

The hotel and facilities are generally very good: The initial impression approaching the hotel and the reception area are excellent. Breakfast is fantastic, huge choice with hot and cold food with an amazing fruit selection. Décor and table-ware is a little outdated and not 5* standard more like a 3* hotel. The pool area is lovely but the pool itself was very cold and the sun-loungers are uncomfortable (no cushions which we would have expected for a 5*). They also don't advertise that you can have clean beach towels, we had to ask. The bar area is fantastic with cold, fruit infused cold water available for free. Lovely relaxing music playing with mega comfy chairs and amazingly friendly staff. Heaven. The beach bar/restaurant overlooking the ocean is beautiful and the food and wine is really good. Definitely recommended. Our room and housekeeping unfortunately were very disappointing. Our room was nothing like the lovely rooms shown on the site and wasn't worthy of a 5* rating. It was dated, small and our single beds were pushed together due to lack of space. The air-con didn't work properly (we had to ask for it to be sorted out). I requested additional pillows and it took over 24 hours to get them (I had to ask twice). As well as the two beds, there was a day bed which was a waste of space as it wasn't really suitable to relax on. It would have been preferable to have two armchairs as we couldn't always sit on the balcony (it was tiny so on sunny days there was no shade to escape to). Tea, coffee & milk were provided on day 1 but we ran out of milk on day 2 and no more was provided until we complained although on the site it states tea and coffee facilities in rooms. Every day there was something missed: our cups were not always washed but left with the previous day's remains, the glasses provided smelt so bad we couldn't use them. Luckily plastic tumblers are available from the bar so we used them. We were provided with a teaspoon on some days but not others. Honestly, the room/housekeeping was of a really poor standard. A plus side is that we were provided with loads of good quality toiletries. The whole site is built on a hill so there are lots of steps and slopes so if you struggle, this may not be the place for you. Generally, we had a lovely holiday here but I don't think we would return.

The best thing about my stay was...

The poolside bar was a haven of tranquility an the staff were absolutely lovely.
