The hotel is fine, the pool area is fine, the staff are friendly and fairly helpful.
The TGI Fridays, which is attached to the hotel and provides their room service, is pretty poor. As far as food goes, it is just another average TGI so do not expect much. It's the staff in TGI which really lets the place down. Out of pure necessity or convenience I ate and/ or drank there several times during my 4 day stay and most of the wait staff were rude, abrupt, obviously terribly unhappy and had no wish to help anyone. I know enough Spanish to get by and was communicating in their own language and yet I was made to feel like I was not welcome and that I was really putting them out just by being there. I came across only 2 staff in TGIs who did their job happily. It takes a lot for me to complain about a place. I just hope my experience here was the exception to the norm.
