We currently stay in the hotel. The only bad thing I can mention is the Internet service. The paying cabled one is simply not working - if you charge for it make sure that it does work.
The free wifi in the lobby is also very shabby - these days it is unacceptable. Personnel is a bit bored. The tv channel selection is rather poor.
Breakfast is good, except the coffee, which is rather awful. I think it should be made fresh for every guest if you want to call yourself a 5star hotel.
Pool is great though the opening hours are ridiculous. Most hotels in Europe keep their pool open until 11 p.m. - people coming back from a daytrip or meetings have to rush back since pool closes at 9 and a boy just calls you out of the pool when it is the nicest
