They Went Out Their way to Please Us
This is a really interesting hotel built in and around strict zoning requirements to preserve the old town feel. When we checked in, we were upgraded to a suite that unfortunately was directly across from an elevator. We are light sleepers, and knew this wouldn't work. The manager put us up for the first night in their best suite, that had a full terrace, two full bathrooms and an amazing suite. The next night they moved us to a fully acceptable room consistent with what he had booked. The rooms are clean, and well appointed. You can easily walk out of the hotel and find 20+ splendid restaurants. Some right on the beach, others tucked away in quaint alley ways on a nearby square. I particularly liked to see so many locals in the restaurants when we went out at night. High marks, we would definitely seek this hotel the next time we are there. The included breakfast was fabulous, both the food and the view from the veranda where they provide it.
