      Had expected more

      Great location, decent balcony with lovely beach/sea views, close to centre with all shops bars and restaurants. Clean rooms, good shower, comfortable, but rooms a little basic. To be honest, we had ruled this hotel out on many other occasions because it was very expensive during the summer so we had expected a little more. There is better value in the area so for this reason we may not stay again.
