We absolutely loved it here! The rooms are spacious, cozy, absolutely feels like home. The staff are also very helpful and they speak English fluently! Also it has a good strategic location so you can do a wide range of activities from this place. Would recommend.

The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. There was only on issue during our stay: the air conditon in our room was not working properly, but right after we told it to the recepcionist the maintainers came and fixed it. All in all we had a very pleasant stay.

Plenty of places to lounge or work on the computer. The breakfast buffet was fine and the dinner buffet great (including a vast array of options, both Italian and... More
