good location close to the fairy area and on the bus route to the airport very nice traditional restaurants in the area
poor accommodation the room looked like wasn't rehabilitated since years - old furniture the overall conditions are meting the expectations for a maximum 2 stars hotel even thought was quite expensive
All was good - location, room, staff, food (bkfst only for us), TV, wifi.
Just one thing. We checked out at 1200 but were not leaving to airport until 1800, so we wanted to leave baggage there. There is no specific place - just one corner of the lobby area - but zero security. They don't even give baggage tags. So if your bag goes, you can do nothing. Either the hotel should stop accepting bags, or start a system to run this properly. We were lucky because we could take our bags - there was no way I could leave them with no security - but I presume most visitors would have no choice.
Sea view from the room is excellent. Location is good - near all points of interest, but at night you hear only the sea (if the window is opened), not music from the clubs or cafes, or something like this.
Furniture looks shabby. Shower gel smelled like it's rotten. No balcony. Very weak and unstable wi-fi signal in the room.
The Diplomat was in a very good position on the main sea front promenade and a 15 minute walk into the main town with lots of bars and restaurants on the way. The buffet breakfast was very good with lots of choice.
The air-conditioning was not cold enough for us. After being examined by the maintenance, it seemed that there was nothing wrong with it and seemed to be the accepted temperature for the locals. Do not choose a room at the front of the hotel as there is an outside bar which is open till 2.00/3.00am and gets quite noisy and lively. The hotel was clean enough, but needs a sprucing up, a coat of paint, was a bit run down for a 4*.
the veiw,personnel, food and location were excellent
We did not like the top bed covers divided in two,it was impossible to get heat and so it felt cold.
The staff was great. It does cater to older clients but that means no problem to get a great sleep. Don't understand the complaint about breakfast. It was the most comprehensive buffet that we saw in 5 weeks of travel in Italy, Sicily and Malta.Hotel a little dated but clean and the price could not be bettered for this location.
The view of the sea and the nice coffee area at front of hotel where you could sit in side or outside
The accessibility of the local services, beach and being able to use some extra beach faciliities through the Hotel
There was no fresh fruit available at breakfast It is now getting to have a tired look as will soon be in need of refurbishment
To be honest, I experienced a shock just ten minutes after my arrival. A huge cockroach welcomed us as soon as we opened the bathroom. We killed it and complained to the reception. They said such things never happen and fortunately it proved to be true. We found no more cockroaches. Neither in our room, nor in other hotel facilities, it must have been a lonely guy:). Rooms were clean and tidy.
Room was OK, access easy, breakfast good
Reception staff not so "friendly" - but still professional. Everything like WiFi, TV, room safe were charged as extras... so didn;t get used.
Sea view from the room
Proximity to seafront. Comfortable (if tired) room.
Levels of friendliness very variable, esp. front of house. I feel that a warm welcome and friendly service goes a long way. However, all requests were considered and handled reasonably effectively. Improvement suggestions to duty manager were well received and I was happy with response. Breakfasts - although included in the price - were uninspiring; food quality acceptable.
