This hotel must have been very good in its heyday. Unfortunately that is long gone and the hotel is badly in need of refurbishment. We booked a Lagoon room but this was dirty and very poorly decorated. There was no hot water and we were moved to a main buillding room when we complained. But no hot water there either, staff said there was a problem with the boiler and it was affecting the whole hotel. We never had really hot water most of the time we were there.
Food was below average, no salad in the evening and not even a banana for breakfast. Not up to English standards, tables were poorly laid and the whole dining experience left a lot to be desired.
Hotel management are going for the Russian market, there were only 3 English couples in the hotel when we were there. Two couples left after a few days and we were the only English left.
We found the staff friendly if you gave them a smile and thank you. A small tip works wonders. The staff are very demoralised and not keen on the Russians.
