Lorenzo Hotel - (Accommodation in Lassi)

Michelle H           

We stayed in an apartment in the Lorenzo Hotel for 2 weeks in June 03. The apartment was very basic (2 bed bedroom, bathroom and front room with 2 bed settees, table & chairs, 2 ringed cooker, fridge, sink (no kettle)and we had to pay for the air-conditioning (86euro for 2 weeks) but served very well as a base. The hotel is spotless, with apartment cleaned every day. The pool/pool area is fab with a wonderful poolside bar serving a delicious menu at keen prices (club sandwich & chips 4-00euro). It is very central to the main area with all the tavernas & restaurants, and only a short walk to the nearby beach which can be viewed from the back balcony of the apartment (front outside terrace faces the main street which is approx 100yds away). Accommodation was B&B but, beware, the breakfast is only juice, tea/coffee with bread & marmalade/jam. The odd morning there were cold boiled eggs or ham!! The only other disappointment was the hotel bar.The bar at reception opened @ 6pm where you could take your drinks out to the veranda at the front of the hotel. However, this closed @ 9pm to allow for the "Atmosphere"bar to open.........Alas there was no atmosphere. There was music advertised for 2 nights a week but this consisted of a guy playing a piano (no singing).......music that should be heard in elevators. The hotel did try to run a quiz night, however the time was too early for people (9pm) as most people are out eating at that time. The staff are very friendly and most obliging especially Zoron who works the main bar. If there was a little bit more effort put into the hotel, it would definitely be the place to be i.e. fix and maintain the children's play area at the pool; get Sky sports in the Hotel; Liven up the "Atmosphere Bar" and/or leave the reception bar open later..........just a few thoughts. Overall, enjoyed our holiday immensely, and looking forward to going back again - a beautiful island.
