We arrived after the Christmas break (13.1.14) and the hotel was fairly quiet. Despite being expected checking in took some time but the staff are friendly, competent and eager to help. The hotel has the beautiful garden running through the atrium but this does make walking around within the hotel rather cold. The landscape around the pool is fairly harsh and I would say unsuitable for children or anyone in need of a walking aid, bed blocking around the pool wasn't a problem due to the rain but damp mattresses were as they are not put away at night even when heavy rain occurred; guest took to folding them between showers to try to keep them dry. Noise in the halls at night were another problem as the bedroom doors have to be banged to shut and heels echo down the marble floors. On the plus side there were free salsa, Zumba, Pilates classes etc in the small but nicely equipped gym and staff were always friendly and helpful. The location is lovely with lots of bars and restaurants and the local square is a must at night without outdoor entertainment and a market twice a week. All in all very nice.
