The hotel was undergone a major addition, including an olympic size swimming pool. That was where I spent a lot of my free time.
When I checked in, the hotel was booked solid they only had a room on the smoking floor. The whole room was practically infused with cigarette smoke and even a repeated application of air freshener did not help. So it is best to check in as early as possible. Booking a non smoking room does not guarantee that you will provided with such.
I checked out the gym, but it was only a tiny room with old equipment, with no staff on stand by duty.
On my last night there, the large pool was used for a private party. But the hotel allowed me to use the smaller swimming pool, and they even put a staff to attend to my needs while I swam.
If you enjoy a nightlife entertainment, there is a commercial spa and club in the hotel complex for you to unwind. I didn't go there though.
All in all, it was a good hotel to sleep (and to swim!), but other than that there is not much else you can do.
