I stayed 3 nights last month in the Cristina & I first impressions were rather poor.
I was staying alone on business & only stayed here because due to some convention in St Helier my usual hotel was way out of my budget.
I booked it through a late booking site & I am sure because of that I was given one of the worst rooms.
Room no 3 is directly over the bar & Monday evening they have live music which may be enjoyable for any one in the bar but not if you have had a very long day & want to sleep.
The room was clean but very dated & my television had dreadful reception & I was only able to get channel 3.There were coffee making facilities but I was left only 1 sachet of coffee each day !
I told reception about the TV ,coffee & the noise but was told I wouldn't be bothered by the music again until Friday ! & somone one would look at my TV & leave me a few more coffee sachets but it was never put right & by the time I got in of an evening I couldn't be bothered to keep complaining.
On the plus side the position of the hotel really is spectacular & the gardens & pool lovely if you get the weather to use them.
The restaurant was very good & the staff were pleasant although there were a few who had quite poor english.
It is unusual for me to complain about a hotel as I always read the reviews before booking & find they are normally a good reflection of the hotel the Christina gets consistantly good reviews so I was rather dissapointed in the standard of the room & service from reception.
I would recommend that if you book this hotel you make sure you get a room overlooking the pool which I think must be far superior to the one I stopped in.
I was asked on leaving if i enjoyed my & I repeated my compaints to the same receptionist who seemed to have totally forgotten I have spoken to him already.
