Most everything was fine at this hotel, but some of the details and the fairly expensive rate prevent it from being excellent. We were happy to have connecting rooms (which we'd requested for our family), but the connecting door was locked and not easily opened because we arrived late at night. The tv remote would not lower the volume or change channels easily--not hugely important, but stopped an otherwise nice place from being as relaxing after big sightseeing days as it could've been.
One room always received an okay cleaning (though instant coffee was not replaced and cups were cheap paper, stir sticks melted in hot water, kettle did not shut off automatically), but other one never received enough towels -- had to request them every time. Shower was positioned much too high to be effective & water "sprayed" from both it and the sink, which was annoying for children. Just details, but...
Wait staff in restaurant was wonderful and warm, and breakfasts included were exceptional. But reception desk was frequently empty, and a friend's room was often open--no one seemed concerned that the lock was broken. Strange way of dispensing non-complimentary sodas and candy led to many in our party having to make special arrangements to return unwanted items to avoid being charged.
Cool weather kept us from enjoying beach, and indoor pool is still under construction -- these two will likely improve a future visit. Taxis weren't plentiful but easily called. Area pharmacy, bank exchange, etc., were easily accessible and people were exceedingly helpful. Enjoyed the place overall.
