Stayed for a few days on business. Hotel is a bit worn and not much going on in the area. Decent bar downstairs. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing special either. I'd stay here again. Restaurants quiet in the evening.

Nice hotel in nice area with very good pool area and food. Travelled on business and stayed in one of the residential apartments, which was very comfortable and spacious. Ate in the pool bar a few times and the Italian restaurant once, both were excellent, as was breakfast. No problems or complaints at any time during my four day stay.
