    Great room, great service. The balcons are large and pleasant. There is parking avaiable and the location is perfect. However, our room had no water the day we left because of a maintainance in the public system.

    Hi We are about to visit the Rex from the UK over Easter. I can see that there were past problems with wifi, with UK travellers has this been sorted out now? It would be a disaster for my 16 year old if not!
