For a week in early February, I was resident on a bed and breakfast tariff in a fifth floor sea facing studio twin . From my arrival to departure all staff were most helpful and facilitated a most enjoyable visit to their 3 star hotel and their island. I had already been advised that the hotel was undergoing refurbishment on...

Don't expect service with a smile at this hotel. Lunchtime waiter didn't listen to our order then was rude & hostile when it was not what I wanted. A complaint was made about him to reception who took my room number and said they would speak to the Director. End of story - heard nothing more and not even an...

Currently being upgraded - well needed. However, the room was a good size and clean, if a little dated. Only two plug sockets - one connected to the TV; the other in the bathroom for the hairdryer. The in-room safe didn't work. There was no combination number pad on it. The door locks are the old-fashioned key operated ones. Very...

Good location with coffee shops, restaurants and bars available. Staff friendly and helpful. The hotel needs reinventing! It is so dated in every aspect. Refurbishment an absolute necessity throughout. Two floors currently being worked on which gives an overall feeling of staying on a building site with drills, hammering and the rest.....six days a week!! Early to late! A property...

We stayed at this hotel for a week, and the all-round quality of the stay was good, although the hotel is getting a little worn. We did not expect too much as it was a budget holiday, and our expectations were met. The room was clean, and was attended to every day. The cooking was limited, and as this was...

We spent a week at the Florisol. Our room was on the ninth floor with a small balcony from the living room and bedroom with great views of the sea and the hotel zone. We stayed bed and breakfast. There was plenty of choice at breakfast, being a buffet style so if wanted you could have a variety. In the...

We returned to Florasol 6th Feb for 2 weeks. Very friendly welcome at the reception. Our apartment was first class with plenty of space and great sea view. We booked B&B but this time found that the hotel had a buffet evening meal which suited us fine. The buffet was a better idea for us than a fixed evening meal...

Great location among other hotels and lots of restaurants. You can easily walk downtown (all downhill) in about half an hour but everything you need to eat or take a tour is nearby. The room was clean but a bit dated. The bed was very hard and small for two people; as well the sheets didn't seem to be changed...
