Florencia @ wet deck is amazing, so nice and serviable, definitely made me want to come back!!! We came with my girlfriends on a business trip and she made sure to give us the best service possible. Finding this kind of service is rare and needs to be recognized when it's given.

The atmosphere is miserable; We were approached by a Dohrman the front of the hotel who was aggressive and said to us ‘What do you want and Who are you’. Frankly I was shocked to be treated so terribly; the service at the restaurant was only moderately better. We waited 15 minutes after being seated for someone to take our order. We ordered our drinks and informed the wait staff that we were ready to order our food then we to waited another 15 minutes before a waiter would take our order. As we were staying in the hotel we went up to the pool; the wait staff by the pool were exceedingly prompt in serving us and giving our drinks to us. Call Heather at the end of our first day by the pool they charged us €54 for a ‘Wet Pass’. This fee is normally charged to people who are not guests at the hotel and want to use the pool. However we were staying in the hotel and therefore should not have been charged this fee. Finally; our son (21 years old) who was staying in another room met a girl at a bar and invited her back to his room only to be told by the hotel security that he was not allowed to have a guest in his room. His guest was 22 years old and he is 21 years old the relations between them were consensual. What on earth were these people thinking????

We were at the Fire at W lounge straight from the entrance on your right as the rooftop and the restaurant at the top were closed. (Surely because of COVID-19). Cocktails were great, elaborated and tasty. The weather was grey and rainy so we didn’t have the chance to drink our cocktails outside in front of the sea/beach under the sun!
