This was our 3rd or 4th visit so we knew what to expect and that does make a difference but more than that - as Bonami club members - this trip was really value for money. And that allows you to overlook some of the standards / services.
The rooms are comfortable and clean and the views really nice.
The bathrooms - well I have just read a lot of negative reviews - which is what made me decide to review our stay too. The hotel does not deserve al the negativity - revise your expectations - look for the specials, and you will not be disappointed.
Yes the baths are small and with the glass screen, actually can be difficult to get out of, but perhaps some of the rooms have bigger baths and you may wish to make enquiries before selecting a room. The bathrooms themselves are not unattractive.
With regard to meal choices - the alacarte menu is not extensive - and it still surprises me that Pizzas are not available - but for a few days stay, its quite adequate. Dinners - well the buffet choices are more extensive on the weekends - and yet I don't think the prices change during the week and paying full price one has higher expectations. But as Bonami members (it was our first year as members) we could not complain and felt the hotel offered real value for money. We will happily return.
