The extensive renovation the hotel is to be desired clearly very well done. Everything made a good, fresh impression - except for the bathroom, but the sequence: Very friendly front desk, an upgrade to sea view-category, a really great renovated rooms, so will one gladly received. Only the bathroom is with the work a bit scant. All public areas are very well maintained. The breakfast buffet offers a large variety. The dishes at lunch and in the evening are relatively expensive, but really worth the money. Very clean pool area, plenty of towels, mega-sandy beach about 3 kilometer in both ... directions. With some caution is swimming in the sea (surf). On foot in 10 minutes or with the {ent_transport_19852} you will find a good number of restaurants, where we always drove. Conclusion: a great beach-week after 10 - day trip - highly recommended. Who tips for a good guide should, i ask you to contact. read hotel review
