Weekend with family
I think this hotel needs urgent renovations. The pools were clean but need an update ASAP and everything around too. In general the hotel looks old, negected and deteriorated too pricey for you got there. Hotel food too expensive and not well elaborate.

The staff are nice and the pool and beach are terrific (great towels, plenty of umbrellas and chairs), bicycles available for guests, and the location is unbeatable...saying that, the rooms are tired and the gym is creepy.

Renovate, renovate, renovate this treasure on the
This is the strangest hotel I have ever stayed in. I was lucky enough to stay in a one bedroom suite, but it was so weird! The furniture in the living area looked like somethimg from the 1970s. Bad bad furniture, desperately needs replacing. The whole place desperately needs up dating. It is like a holiday camp and som of the rooms from the outside look like jail cells. Seriously, for a hotel in this location, the place needs some desperate attention. The front desk people were probably the NICEST, KINDEST reception staff I have EVER come across. THey were genuinely happy to help me out. UNBELIEVABLY efficient and friendly. Cannot PRAISE them highly enough. It is a SHAME that this place is as run down as it is. The brekfast was good but service slow. The bar man at the pool bar seemed as if he was on another planet! Very slow and unobservant. PLEASE PLEASE renovate this little treasure on Lido beach. It is worth it. I would love to return BUT I am nervous to while it remains this old fashioned and tired.
