“An unforgetable experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2003

The rooms were nice and clean, as far as a hotel goes. The pillows could have been fluffier. The cleanliness of the hotel was terrible.
The breakfast bar was not properly managed. There was not enough coffee available or milk as well. The restrooms on the main floor by the pool were filthy. The womens had no toilet paper and the stalls were almost unbearable. The corridors were full of garbage as were the stairwells.
The staff was nice. Would I return or reccommend the hotel to others?
No. Definitatly not.
