  • 4.0.Fair

    The entrance to the Bluebottle guest resort requires guests to walk up over 130 stairs, on a very steep incline with poor lighting in the evenings. This was not disclosed prior to the booking being completed. Despite requesting a double bed (and booking a specific room), we were given two single beds and it was very uncomfortable to sleep on with another person.

    Sichere Unterkunft mit aufmerksamer Gastgeberin

    Sehr freundliche Gastgeberin, sie machte ein frische zubereitetes und üppiges Frühstück nach Wunsch und half die Koffer die 130 Stufen zu tragen. Unterkunft ist in einer sicheren Umgebung, bis zum Strand und Restaurants sind es 10 Minuten zu Fuss.

    Hellhöriges und nicht gerade sauberes Hotel. Ausstattung ganz ok. Frühstück war hingegen geschmacklich sehr gut.
