4.6km from The River CafeWe arrived into the entrance and was told the room will take a few minutes as a maintenance guy was fixing a light in the room. There is a bar called the Schooner Bar to the left of the reception area and to the right is the Cucinos Restaurant which is Italian. The porter came and took our bags up to the room. It was a sea view with a balcony which was nice. I have to say the room was crisp bright and spotless. What surprised my colleague and I was the little attention to detail in the bathroom where they left you toothbrush and toothpaste which is rare. They left a little treat of cakes on the table overlooking the sea. It was a nice touch. The balcony sadly didn't have any furniture to sit outside. The room though had a whistle noise which didn't bother me at the beginning but it really bothered my colleague. My colleague requested a bucket of ice and 2 wine glasses which was asked at reception but we are still waiting. It eventually came after 35 minutes and they apologised for the delay but I was not impressed. the restaurant opens in the evenings from 5pm to 9.30pm Wednesdays through to Saturday and 1pm to 9.30pm on Sundays. The Schooner Bar gives food all day. It is open til 11.30pm Monday to Thursdays, and 12.30pm Saturdays and from 12 noon to 11pm Sundays. We tried the Cucinos Restaurant my colleague had spaghetti alla carbonara €14 and I had the penne all arrabbiata pasta with chicken €17. The food was dreadful. My colleagues meal was dry felt like it had been standing for awhile. mine was so wet and not tasty. We complained and they offered us something else so my colleague then said they would try the Mediterranean Salad for €7.50 and I tried the Crositini can Prosciutto a Farmaggio Di Capra for €8.00. Yet again my colleague and I were disappointed with the salad it was so bland, so tasteless and boring. The staff were very pleasant helpful and polite. We complained yet again they gave us tea and coffee but the tea was dire coffee somewhat palatable. The bill was €8 but I was applaud that they took it away and I didn't even get a chance to eat it. I shouldn't have had to pay for anything as the experience was extremely terrible. They should have wiped the entire bill! There was no ambiance music that made you feel like you were in an Italian restaurant. We enquired about the leisure facilities what surprised both of us was you have to leave the building go outdoors to get to the swimming pool which we thought was crazy. We would give this a two for the view but for everything else very disappointing.
