    Superb

    THE STAFF,especially the receptionist,is excellent & curteous. Nice food.

    1.Very limited TV channels with no radio station.One gets behind on news. 2.The furnishure in the rooms is drab and old.

    Good

    Location is good. You have numerous restaurants to choose from.

    Didn't think the price was worthy of what you were getting. Actually thought it was exhorbitant.

    The Position

    1. Poor Service 2. Stuffy Rooms - they could open the windows before guests arrive. 3. En-suite bathroom very poor - needs renovation. 4. Restaurant Service very average.

    Fabulous

    Very warm and employees very accommodating and friendly

    None about the hotel. Did not like the fact I had to put all my credit card details to confirm booking and then again use the card at the hotel to pay. Believe we should be able to pay directly when making the booking.

    Superfreundliches Personal, traumhafte Lage.

    Good

    Das Personal was sehr freundlich und aufmerksam.

    Das Zimmer war etwas abgewohnt und schlampig gereinigt. Der Meerblick war nicht der Rede wert.

    Guest rating

    Die direkte Lage am Meer ist der einzige Punkt, der für das Hotel spricht.

    Schon sehr in die Jahre gekommen. Pool sehr dreckig. Kleine Zimmer. Teppich und Bad mindestens 30 Jahre alt. Ohne Reservierung kein Essen im Hotel möglich. Über Silvester wegen Menschenmassen am Strand absolut nicht zu empfehlen. Personal an der Rezeption überfordert.

    Superb

    Sehr aufmerksames und freundliches Personal. Herzlich und wirklich engagiert. Stellenweise richtig schönes Juendstil Interieur. Die Zimmerausstattung ist nicht großartig aber angemessen.

    Na ja , beim Frühstück kann man schon noch etwas besser organisieren. Aber wenn man im Urlaub ist und etwas gelassen damit umgeht, kann man auch dem leichten Chaos etwas abgewinnen. Was zählt ist der gute Wille. Und der ist zweifelsohne vorhanden. Ansonsten ist das was man bekommt ok.

    Good

    Personal in den Restaurants sehr freundlich

    die Damen an der Rezeption konnten keinen Tipp geben, was man während des Aufenthalts in der näheren Umgebung so machen kann und haben uns zum Informationsbüro vom Nachbar-Hotel geschickt. So was geht gar nicht.
