The rooms were ample.
It was clean.
The staff was helpful and friendly, most of them spoke a little bit of english.
The buffet breakfast was good.
The room had two televison sets.
The consierge spoke english, spanish, catalan and french.
The walls are paper thin, ergo you are always hearing voices, door slamming, sneezes etc. In fact, the first night I thought that someone had broken into the room. Though I should mention that my nerves were on edge since I was reading Stephen King's It.
The hotel might have trouble with the pipage because you could hear strange gurgling noices at night.
The location is not the best.
The wi-fi is spotty.
The view in our room was that of pebbles and bamboo.
Without the things above the hotel would be a 5 star hotel so I hope that management sees this review and tries to improve it's hotel.
