Fabulous 8.8 From 298 reviews

Fair 4.0
bad experience
The services provided by the hotel was really low. I checked in for the first night tired at 1 am, the first bedroom given had the flush broken. I have been reallocated to another bedroom with 2 single beds. The fridge wasn’t daily refilled So i had to go outside at 3am to buy some water, and in addition, the hover hasn’t been done during my entire stay. Let’s imagine the sand and the gliders on the floor. To close that, my bedroom was in front of the pool and the music as well as the services during the morning made some important noises.

Nice hotel. Worth looking at.
Hotel and grounds are very nice. Staff was wonderful and they have a parking garage right next door that they don’t mention. The local neighborhood looks a bit questionable to someone who isn’t a local but we never had any problems. I would definitely stay here again!

Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic hotel, let down by reception.
We thought this hotel was excellent, although we did pay a bit extra for one of the larger old building rooms. The only let down is the speed of service at reception. Check-out took circa 15 minutes, after 15 minutes waiting in a queue for the person in front to check out. Luckily we were only 2nd in the queue, we felt sorry for the 5 people behind us who were undoubtably going to be waiting along time!
