This hotel is in a great location, next to the old town, walking distance to restaurants and night life and its right on the beach. If you are looking for good service, stay away from this hotel. This hotel has no parking, and there is no close parking in the summer months. There is no one to help you carry your bags/luggage to the room. To get to the elevator with your luggage, you have to go up 5 steps, its crazy,, an older person cannot handle this If you want to use the beach, the hotel does not offer beach towels or chairs. If you need to use a beach chair, the hotel charges either $15 OR $10 euros per day additional charge. The breakfast is fine, but not that great. The day I checked in there were other people complaining about other hotel services, such as disability folks access to the beach. I would not stay in this hotel again
