The rooms in this hotel are a good size and are clean and well presented. The beds however are extremely uncomfortable, very hard with big uncomfortable square pillows. I left the hotel with a sore back & feeling unrested after 2 bad nights sleep.
For any ladies who require a hair dryer my tip is to bring your own! The one the hotel provides is attached to a hose on the wall and is pathetic! The don't provide an alternative plug in one either.
The reception staff are not the friendliest and are not the kind of people to go to any extra effort to help make your stay more comfortable.
Breakfast is good, with a wide variety of food.
The gym is a good size with quality equipment and the pool area is nice but I can see that it would be very crowded during a busy season.
The hotel staff outside the front door try hard to get you into a more expensive hotel taxi rather than a regular one. This really annoyed me as they are more expensive. Even when you say no they still signal for it to pull up in front and try and force you to take it.
Because of the lack of quality sleep during my stay as a result of such uncomfortable beds as well as the unfriendly staff who make sure your stay in unmemorable, I would not stay here again.
