staying from Saturday 8 till Friday 14 feb. 2014
at checking in, I requested a non-smoking room and a different view from last time when I stayed at sofitel in December, the receptionist told me that you only has twin bed available, but will change room next day to single bed, They did not bother next day to check with me nor to change the room, so I am still in twin bed.
The corniche restaurant where they serve buffet meals, serves same food every day, no taste and no flavor, even the dishes are located in the same spot daily. The waiters are not professional, you have to call them to remove empty plates and get you water, they make you feel not welcomed as if you are a burden on them. last night i went for dinner at 10:30, they close at 11:00, so the waitress said you have only 30 minutes to finish your dinner you are late, I said OK, after a while another waiter came to me and told me that they will close in 10 minutes, the restaurant was having more that 20-30 guests, who were still at the salad bar.
today I had to wait more than 10 minutes at lunch to get a bottle of water, but when he brought it, supposed to be sparkling water, it was regular water in the bottle of sparkling water, and was looking rudely when requested to change it.
