Fodor's Review

Though the hotel still scores high with value-oriented travelers, many of the rooms in this seafront hostelry are in need of an update (some have been updated). That said, the upgraded rooms are comfortable and unfussy, and the hotel's position overlooking a green belt, popular promenade, and the sea can't be beat. Sunday jazz brunches are legendary (and have to be booked in advance), and the elegant sea-facing terrace is popular with locals for tea and afternoon drinks.

Meanwhile, the Mediterranean-style courtyard draped in ivy and bougainvillea makes for an elegant summer refuge from the blazing sun, offering tea and meals around a beautiful wrought-iron fountain.
