I like the ambience of the hotel, but the mini bar seems like a booby trap, you are not warned that you will be exorbitantly charged for the water inside the fridge. and it becomes more ridiculous taking cognizance of the amount you pay for the room.

Lobby is impressive. Rooms are medium sized, toilets almost new. A/C too noisy. Breakfast is gorgeous, as well as buffet-dinner. Staff is friendly and available. Other facilities which I didn't use. No luxury, but really comfortable, with an extraordinary ratio quality/price.

Very clean rooms and delicious meals but too expensive. The staff are very courteous and welcoming. Not only that i was satisfied, I also believe that I received a valuable service for my money, and I also feel valued and respected by the workers providing the service.

The food was good throughout the stay and the hotel had a good bar area that whilst not busy was always pleasant. Evening buffet was as good as the breakfast and the communal areas fine. the pool seemed an afterthought and the hotel was not a place where I could see people lounging around the pool. Bedroom was a disappointment,...
