“Nothing special”
Reviewed November 4, 2008

I was staying for 20 days during October and the first impression was good. But after couple of days I found couple of disappointing things. Room AC units are just ON / OFF - the temperature settings are just for fun, so the room is hot or cold. Breakfasts weren't 5* at all and about 10 AM almost every food was eaten. Room service was normal - nothing bad. Swimming pool was under maintenance all the time, but the hotel personnel was trying to convince me that "it will be next day". The good thing about this hotel is free and really working Internet. Generally, there is nothing special at all about this hotel and the overall experience is not 5* at all.
