This is a very unusual hotel, it is upside down due to being on a slight hill, friendly staff and the complete hotel is very clean and tidy. We had breakfast and it has everything we needed. Central for shops bars etc and beach on the door step perfect.

This hotel is showing its age, built in 1965 it needs updating. Rooms are nice and big also good sea views plus the lift goes down to the beach.

Worst 4 star hotel I have ever stayed in, left after 2 days. Hardest beds, basic room, orange plastic chair on balcony, unable to see sea view without standing up. Dated furnishings around hotel, restaurant not even worth a mention. Do not stay here if you are under 85 years old.

The rooms were very clean, towels changed every day, location of the hotel is excellent, in walking distance of bars restaurants entertainment shopping. Lovely balcony looking over the beach, food in hotel was good, staff very helpful and friendly. Hotel could do with a little bit of updating, spacious rooms, all have a little fridge in room, no tea or coffee in the room so worth taking a mini kettle and a couple of cups etc. I have been back to the hotel twice now, would have been more but it was fully booked.

We were in room 102 the bath was not fit for humans due to the flaking of the enamel on the bath, the bottom of the bath was a brown colour, the restaurant windows was covered in flies, no-one seemed to care about it, the bar shut at midnight, no more drink, the inside pool was just a laugh. The only good thing was the location and sunshine holidays service, we will book with you again, many thanks.

We were a group of 6 people and to be honest we were a little apprehensive about this hotel after reading the reviews - however we found that the reviews were not typical of our experience. The rooms were cleaned every day, the staff very helpful and the location was the best we have found anywhere. There was a safe (15 euros per week) and fridge in the room and a lift which took us directly down to the beach. The position of the hotel was 2-3 minutes walk to the Old Town where there was plenty going on but if we wanted to stay in the hotel at night there was a good singer or dancing on every night. The food was typical hotel buffet fare but was quite acceptable - at least 2 meat dishes/1 fish dish and always a vegetarian dish which was good as one of our party was vegetarian. Also salads very fresh. Even though the weather wasn't kind to us most days we still managed to keep ourselves entertained and enjoyed the holiday.

Good hotel. It is in a very good location. Needs a little updating but was clean. Staff were very helpful. There is wi fi in every room now. Dining room needs altering to give more room between the tables. Would go back to this hotel.

3rd time at hotel. Rooms are adequate good size could do with bit of refurbishment in places but clean. Ideally situated for beach and town. Staff friendly and helpful. Evening meals are pretty basic breakfasts fine so b\b is always an option. Evening entertainment laid back relaxed very good pianist most nights if that is what suits.

No complaints at all. Nothing at all wrong with the buffet dinners with always something we fancied. The buffet breakfast was particularly nice with plenty of bacon on offer for your full English and loads of other stuff for afters. The miserable waiter only adds to the character of the place. Rooms cleaned every day and great location. Could not ask for more except maybe a kettle and hairdryer. A hairdryer is available at reception but why do you have to ask for one at a 4* hotel?

Good hotel with excellent sea views. Reception lady think her name was Berta was really nice and helpful. We had a huge room on the 6th floor which I had requested and got. Lovely. Food ok and sure everyone would find something to eat. Miserable waiter in the dining room though. Would return to this hotel.

This hotel is fab, it is right on the beach and all the rooms face the sea. Excellent breakfast, everything you could want. Staff are very friendly and rooms are very clean and very comfortable and have a fridge in the room which is a bonus as well. The hotel is also near to the square and all the shops and bars.

Have stayed here previously, love the hotel. One complaint is the baths are so old, chipped enamel and grey at bottom, seriously need replacing, you would not get in this bath at home but thankfully, has hand held shower so you do not have to sit in the bath! Would not recommend evening meal, best to go bed and breakfast as eating out is very reasonable and many restaurants and choice.

Rooms are very clean and staff helpful.The lounge area is beautiful, with a nice friendly pianist most evenings, relaxing for a late night drink. Also added bonus of small fridge in the room. Rooms are all sea facing and very spacious, beautiful view to wake up and see the sea. Most guests are German or Dutch, very few English .Not really for families as no facilities for children in the hotel, with no outdoor pool.
