I find it hard to believe some of the reviews posted for this hotel (trip advisor will not let me post the reason why I think this happens and asked me to amend this review which I have done).
The front desk staff were not welcoming or friendly. A member of staff regularly walked around the breakfast buffet eating his breakfast while standing.
Our reservation (made on their online booking site) was for a king sized bed. We were not given this and when challenged and a copy of the confirmed reservation shown no apology was made or solution offered - just "we don't have one available."
We booked the "studio with equiped kitchen" - this is basically a sink unit on one side of the admittedly large bedroom. On the same unit were a coffee maker and two burner hotplate but there was no where to plug these in. (there was no socket nearby). There was a large fridge.
There was no extractor fan and as this cooker was in the same room as the bed if we had have cooked we would have had a very smelly room. In no way did this room merit the title "studio". There are for example no easy chairs or sofa, only a small dining table with ONE chair.
Construction work is going on in the hotel leading to noise during the day and ugly barriers near the swimming pool.
No one offered to help with our luggage - the room was on the first floor and there is no lift.
For large parts of the day during our stay there was a smell of sewage in the room.
