    OK hotel

    As others have said, the bed is comfy and the room is a good size. However for a 4 star hotel, most things were extra. You get a safe free of charge, and pool towels. But you have to pay if you want to use the pool after check out, for the gym and indoor pool and breakfast. Also there isn't the availability of a room or shower area to freshen up before your flight. The pool area is nice, and you get a lot of space. But the hotel is a decent walk from town. Going there it's fine, down hill, but walking back on a hot day is quite unpleasant, and we're pretty fit people. It has a bar that isn't expensive really, and there are some shops a short walk away for breakfast or other items. Hotel is fine if you want a pool, but if you dont I would definitely stay closer to town. Some staff were lovely and really helpful, but some were really miserable. I probably would choose somewhere closer to the centre next time.
