Casa is definately worth a visit - we stayed in the Picasso suite and it was clean, spacious and comfortable. The hot-tub was lovely, my only critisism of this is that it could do with a lifter - the cover is very difficult and heavy to manoeuvre.
Other little niggles: The bathroom was adequate but could have done with being larger for a suite of this size and price - loads of towels though, bathrobes and slippers and really nice toiletries. There was also no means of making fresh coffee in the suite - fine if you're a tea drinker but I really missed my "proper coffee", somehow a sachet of nescafe doesn't really hit the spot! It really does need either a coffee maker or even a cafetiere with some good fresh coffee. For me, a black coffee adict, this is far more important than a carton of fresh milk in the fridge!
Dinner was excellent and breakfast too was really good - extensive buffet and staff more than happy to cook anything else to order. All the staff were really helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble.
The reason for my 4 star rather than 5 is, unfortunately, nothing that can be altered. The location is fine if on business in the area but all the rooms look out on a concrete jungle of car park, main roads and large supermarkets.
However, would I go again - yes!
