Built in 1993 and renovated in 2001, the Palms knows how to impress from the moment you cross its threshold. With its lobby designed like that of a traditional old-style house (small varnished wooden desk, a pedestal table and rug on the tiled floor), the hotel feels more like a guest house than a big hotel complex. Don't be fooled, however: the rooms are not above the reception. These areas are given over to a library and a games room (pool table, bridge tables). Down below, there is a small health centre with a jacuzzi, a sauna, a Turkish bath and a gym. The swimming pool is located below the tower housing the rooms. It is big (4,305 sq ft), with an area for children, and it is surrounded by a concrete solarium which could really benefit from the addition of a few plants. The amenities are good quality though: covered plastic deckchairs are supplied free of charge, as are towels, while parasols will set you back £0.90 a day. The unbeatable view over the ocean is truly something to behold.
