Nice architecture

The welcome was fine, the personnel quite nice. The style of the building was quite pleasing to see, but the room assigned was disappointingly small and overlooking a brightly lit carpark. The bedside tables were full of merchandise. No space left for putting down my reading glasses or a book. The poolside was very pleasant, spacious, with furniture that went very well with the building style of the 1930s. All in all I would refer the hotel to a friend, especially for the atmosphere and the nearness to the ocean. But I would warn them about the size of the bedroom.

Great hotel, great location,

Kettle in rooms would be good, more sun loungers around the pool. They had a lot of tables and chairs taking up a lot of space. But overall a great stay, with very friendly staff. Excellent roof top bar with great sunset views
