Excellent hotel very clean and plesant although I would say it is not a 5 star hotel! more like a 3.5/4 star at the best.
Rooms are well kept and cleaned every day to a high standard. Pool was big and warm and even had a movie screen for the evenings.
Staff were pleasant and friendly, always smiling without being too false. Best thing is of course the express passes (we stayed for 4 nights and got our moneys work)
Got a good deal from hotels4u (in late october £400 (about $700) for 4 nights. Otherwise the rooms are VERY expensive for what they are and TBH I would never stay here for the price they charge.
But we had a nice time and it was (at the time) excellent value.
