It was in a good location, easy for getting around on buses and taxis
Hotel was good for what we wanted. Bus stop out side which takes you direct to near the Cathedral - not easy to get back by bus but taxis reasonably priced. Was very noisy in the early hours when people return from bars and clubs. Wood panelling and solid flooring did nothing to neutralise noise. ...
Bad food in restaurant. Despite asking at least twice for the burgers of two of us to be well done they came our raw.
The property was beautiful. Only disadvantage is that it is not on a beach. Closest beach is 10 minutes By taxi.
Modern and accommodating. Comfortable bed. A little out of town but close to marina - suited us
Had a lovely 5 days at the beautiful Nixe Palace. The service and food were both excellent. The hotel is lovely and clean and it was a pleasure to be on the beach with the pool so close too. A fab break and we hope to return.
