During our stay I fell ill, and had to have a special diet for 10 days. This was provided without any fuss or problem, and I was grateful to... More

We stayed one night at a junior suite at 5th floor. The space was well disposed, the bathroom and shower was excellent. A wellcome plate with strawberries dipped in chocolate was waiting at us at arrival. Turndown service with chocolate was also provided. The bed was very comfortable providing 9 hours sleep!

We liked the location of this hotel and that it offered non-inclusive half board which gives us better choice of drinks, meals and tours. In fact the food was superb, lots of choice, daily themes, inventive cocktails and an extensive choice of red, white and roses with a good range of prices.

Very quiet and friendly week experience. No significative problem. For people who look for rest without crying children and noisy late dancing activities it is the perfect choice. At proximity but outside the hotel we recommend Bogeda restaurant. Good breakfast, good location, friendly staff, good beds and rooms.
