Great hotel, friendly and helpful reception staff, but awful food, service and value for money when it comes to eating. After my experience of waiting over 45 minutes for my order to come, counting how many other diners there were (22), starting to write this review and then being unable to find the waitress or any other staff member to find out what was going on, I went next door to Front Loop to eat. Where I got great service, from friendly staff and fantastic food.
The waitress then caught me on way back. She tried to make me pay for the meal. I said I'd waited over 45 minutes, I looked for her, I looked for other staff. She said they were very busy, I looked at the 1/2 empty restaurant and said no and that at the time they had only guests and were 1/2 empty. She then tried to make me pay for my water which I didn't drink as I was waiting for my meal. I said no, the manager came over (I think it was) they said something in Spanish shrugged gave me a dirty look and said "ok" and walked off with no other words.
Fortunately there are many great places to eat here and as the price of the room doesn't include food, I'd recommend it as a place to stay but not to eat.
