    • 8.0.Very good

      Pros - staff were lovely. Very clean. Bed was exceptionally comfortable. Safe location. Pool and rooftop area are lovely with lovely sea views. On a main bus route and easy walking to bus stops. I felt completely safe in this hotel and area. Cons - quite a far walk from convenience shops for things like water etc. Would be good to have this in the hotel (although there was a bar) The road is quite noisy even when high/far back. Lifts ping constantly which could be heard from both rooms I stayed in. Cleaners start early so noise in corridors. No option for recyclables to be disposed of and no filtered water dispenser so lots of plastic water bottles taken away in normal bin. Overall, I would recommend this hotel and i would stay here again

      Perfect stay

      The Manager Andreana was absolutely amazing allowed us to check in earlier and check out later as we had a late flight. Everyone at the hotel was so accommodating and friendly. Would definitely book again. Our first holiday since covid19 and the Diplomat made it all so efficient and convenient for us.

      Propre et acceuillant

      Hôtel propre, les personnels sont aimable et marrant, la réceptionniste Andrea très gentille, et très sociable. En arrivant la boisson d'acceuil une flûte de champagne :) Je n'ai pas eu la même chambre indiquée sur Hotels.com mais Andrea a eu la gentillesse de m'échanger avec une autre plus confortable.
