Nice hotel, well appointed rooms and active and attentive staff who really tries there best to make you feel happy.
Bar, lively in afternoons and the restaurant for dinner was pretty full and both food and service good.
Breakfast good quality and wide choice of items, only clearing tables is a point of attention.
If there is one think I need to mention as not so nice its my room location. (all rooms XX5) I opted for the more expensive room with Marina view only to find out my view was blocked for about 75% due to an apartment building. So if you ask me if the extra for this room was worthwhile, no. It would be fair from the hotel to call this partial Marina view, i feels a little as knocking some money out of my pocket for not much....
I will mention this when I check out coming sunday because its ok to ask more for whatever you like as long as you are honest.
