We stayed from Saturday afternoon till Sunday morning:
• No one was on reception duty on Saturday. When checking in we were only able to speak directly with was someone from administration. They were the only person from the Residence we saw during our stay. Telephone numbers were listed to speak to off duty reception staff.
• We did understand that this was a self catering residence. However the hotel booking site we used listed on site facilities including a coffee bar, bar, restaurant and a snack bar
• There was no restaurant or bar service on Saturday night (there was some sort of function on that night - quite noisy from our room, particularly on the balcony) or breakfast service on Sunday morning.
• There is no coffee shop or snack bar on site that we could find, but a local outdoor cafe next door (where it was so windy they had to close down mid-evening).
• The local restaurant facilities are quite a walk away from the residence, along a busy coastal road.
• We had a two bedroom apartment for three people, with two showers. The rooms were fine, but only one tiny bar of soap was available.
• No on-site parking was offered, or seemed available. There was fenced, unattended lock-up parking about 2-300 meteres away.
• The residence is full of warning notices, saying things such as there will be a 50 euro fine if the furniture is moved(!), or collective fines for all guests if one guest does not dispose of their rubbish properly (!)
The views were magnificent, but our experience of the residence was not particularly welcoming and it was expensive for the services/service level provided: a dispiriting experience for three tired travellers.
