Nice business type hotel near beach

Posted 17-Oct-2017
Pros: The proximity to the beach. The staff and the roof top terrace
Cons: The food was not great
Location: Close to the beaches and bars with some water activities. Short taxi ride into main city
We had an enjoyable few days here and found it very relaxing. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and looked after their guests. The hotel was a short walk to the beach and to some good restaurants. ( try going to the streets behind the hotel for better value and quality) The room was comfortable and clean as were the common areas. Couple of gripes was TV remote did not work and despite being told it would be fixed it was not and we tried ordering breakfast in our room on the last morning and our card was not collected although put out in time. Small gripes on an overall lovely few days.

Lovely!

Posted 2-Oct-2017
From the moment we stepped toward the hotel, we were greeted with respect and kindness. We were welcomed with a very warm reception. Our room was absolutely perfect for us. The view was amazing, the bed was very comfortable and the pillows were so wonderful. We had many questions and many requests and every whim was taken care of swiftly and with much respect and joy. I do not have one negative thing to say about this place or the staff. Our wedding anniversary was amazing because of how amazing and warm the staff were. We look forward to coming back. This is where we would like to spend our wedding anniversary EVERY YEAR!

A new clean and comfortable hotel close to beach

Posted 19-Sep-2017
Pros: Everything
Cons: Size and frequency of elevators.
Location: All within walking distance
Very happy with the accommodation, service and amenities. The view from second floor next to the pool was breath taking. Very comfortable walk to restaurants, metro and shopping mall. Comfortable beds, clean sheets and towels, good size room and bath room. We could not ask for better accommodations at the price paid.

Nice Modern Hotel, Close to the Beach

Posted 13-Jun-2017
Pros: Clean and modern
Cons: Noise insulation?
Location: Beach, sports facilities, local bars and restaurants
Located on seafront by the Olympic village, the hotel is well situated for the beach and sports amenities. It is also a little away from the bustle of the city centre giving the best of both worlds. Unfortunately my room was on the first floor and faced directly on to the street so noise from late night revellers and public service vehicles was a problem. While the hotel restaurant was good, there are also a few restaurants located just down the promenade, but choose carefully as not all are up to standard. Overall a pleasant stay and would definitely use again.

Great pool and beach. Comfort. Worth the money.

Posted 26-May-2017 on Hotels
We had wanted to be outside the city a bit at a quieter beach in a hotel with a pool... this hotel was perfect for this! The hotel was luxurious... beds are huge, shower is fab, view from room out to beach was gorgeous. The pool area is lovely... u have to pay for sun loungers but comfy free beanbags do just as good a job. Room service menu isn't great and windowsmall don't block out noise but everything else was great. Service at pool bar is sooo slow!!
