We knew the Radisson chain and thought it would be a safe choice.
The room was disappointing. There was no wardrobe space so we asked a room with a normal wardrobe and there wasn't any (there was 1 hanging rack and no shelves or drawers, and this for 2 people?). The only option was to upgrade to a junior suite, which we did. There was plenty of wardrobe space :-)
We had a room in the ocean theme and I must say, it is not that impressive. It looks cheap and even a bit dated.
The reception staff was extremely helpfull, big thanks to them. But the rest of the staff was a complete disaster. The cleaning crew didn't understand english and wasn't too precise...
The bar staff was invisible and when you finally found one, it took them 40 minutes to bring 2 ice teas.
It seemed that it was low season for the hotel, which we completely understand but maybe they should inform the guests about minimum service...
