Initial reception was a bit 'íffy' with a delay of almost two hours before my room became available, other than that reception was always very helpful.
I did not like the bar, as the staff gave me the impression that unless you spoke fluent Spanish you should not have been there!
I had no problems with the rooms other than noise coming from the conference rooms one Saturday night when a wedding was being celebrated... but we were all young once!
Food was good.
The only 'down side' was that it was situated so far from anywhere ... there were no shops you could realistically walk to.
