We stayed in the suite 34 in the "hotel 5 stars" building (the old one).
I will start the negative points if you don't mind.
It has nothing of a 5 stars hotel standards.
No air conditioning, 1 velux in our bedroom but it has been closed with screws as the window was apparently broken.
In the children room, 1 of the 2 velux window was not closing properly.. Quite noisy in the night.
We asked for a baby bed. But we never received any mattress. In the end we took the one we had in our car.
Painting on the wall would need some refresh.
Not book neither in the Room to explain the rules, give some indication nor giving details about the room service options.
6long chairs around the swimming pool for a bit less than 60 bedrooms seems strange!
You are suppose to be in the 5 starts part (and you pay for it) but you have nothing more nor included in the price than the one staying in the studios. Small swimming pool is for everybody, you have to pay your parking place, your breakfast..
What's the point?
But we loved the shared spaces as the lobby and the room with the piano. Really simple and beautiful decoration.
The situation in the market area is really nice and the persons working at the reception and the bar are friendly!
As conclusion I would say that you shouldn't expect a 5 stars service but that the place is nice. Maybe better to pay less and to stay in the residence part. I would recommend it to friends on that way.
