Contrary to the former review, I am currently a guest at this hotel and am quite frankly disappointed. Having visited here on a number of occasions many years ago I find that nothing has changed - apart from the service. Hotel is jaded and definitely needs dragging into the current era. Restaurant service quite poor and very overcharged. €67 for a lettuce salad, a piece of hake with 3 prawns atop and some sauce ( nothing else whatsoever!!) and a tiramisu which I ate because I was so very hungry though I never usually eat desert. This was accompanied by a mediocre wine - the only wine they have in a half bottle - no one offered me by the glass though I later noted that other diners had this.
I was denied the chance of an external dinner booking by the extended time it took the reception staff to convey a message of confirmation to me
I shall be very pleased to make myself known to Snr Gustavo Escobar should he respond to this review.
There are some pluses which are outweighed by the negatives. Can't wait to go home though!!
