I stayed there for few days. Breakfast was just 3/5. The room was clean and the reception desk was just ok but the safety box in the room didn't work and it took way too long to get it repaired.

Most of the guests are on a business trip, so the hotel lack amenities like a big pool or playrooms. There is no gym, but you run or jog in the 3.5 km track by the water channel nearby. The apartments are kept clean, and many have a kitchen. Staff is attentive and breakfast has enough variety.

Hotel situated a short walk to the beach and is in easy reach of bars, restaurants and shops. The pool area is fabulous (2 pools and a swim up bar). The staff were excellent, very friendly and obliging. Free Wi-Fi but it was a bit hit and miss.
