Just finish a weeks stay at this hotel and very pleasant it was.
The staff are first rate both with their professionalism, friendliness and something missing these days, a duty to customer satisfaction.
We stay in one of the two family rooms which I would recommend to couples. You get the benefits of a larger room and 2 balconies, a small one at the back and a balcony at the front, that’s size is unequaled in JLP, it is big.
As we are of the age that the beach is a pain and sunbathing is really bad for the skin. We actually enjoyed relaxing most of the time on the balcony. It comes with a electric canopy and I have seen photos of sun loungers, but, you would have to enquire if they would be available for your stay, we didn’t want them, so we never requested them. The balcony also gets the sun from around midday until it sets. The balcony is over looked from apartments across the road, but only by one or two.
Time for the nuts and bolts. The hotel I suspect has been around for a while now, as the lift should be a little bigger for the size of the hotel. The decor is dated, though fresh and clean it is. If you want to be picky you can be, but we feel that the positive attributes that this hotel has, out way the dated colour scheme.
Positives. I’ve never been in a hotel with so many towels. The bathrobes and slippers are a nice touch. The location is fantastic in so far, as it’s near enough to everything but far away from the noise.
Breakfast focuses on continental, there is plenty and for once, decent coffee from one of those horrid multi choice machines. Just goes to show, it’s not the machines fault, it’s the cheap so and so who buys the coffee to go in it. Hot option is limited to scrambled eggs and mildly spiced hot sausages. But for us, there was was more than enough with the continental.
Parking is available and IS A MUST IN JLP, you have been warned. There is at the time I write, some building work at the back of the hotel. The builders are beginning to finish off work on a small one story building. The only reason I mention it, is because no doubt someone will comment on it. I would like to say that in no way did it affect our stay, be it with noise, etc.
The only possible problem, was that our car got dusty, though a 4 euro car wash rectified that issue.
So the bottom line, would we stay here again? Answer a big fat YES. less
