2/10 Poor

We had a very negative experience at this hotel. All through the night people are out on their balconies drinking and being loud. People come back to the hotel late and are very loud in the hallways. We also had housekeeping come into our room twice with the do not disturb sign hanging. One time I was changing in the middle of the living room. No knock on the door. The other time we were gone and came in to the room being cleaned, which we didn’t want. We also had a broken hair dryer and were told they couldn’t replace it, it had to be repaired. We had to have a bedside lamp switched out three times because we kept getting broken ones. When we went for breakfast our final day, one person stayed behind to go later. When she went she was told that because the other people in the room went to breakfast already her food was already provided and she couldn’t have anything. Not even a cup of coffee! No one told us anything at breakfast. We said three people at the time! We asked to leave after the first night and be refunded so we could stay somewhere else. The manager refused. I would only recommend this place if you stay up late and are okay with noise. I would never recommend it otherwise.

Great hotel, good location, very clean!
Hotel was very good, staff in reception were polite. Rooms were very clean. My only comment would be that the security around the pool over the weekend stopping people playing with a light weight ball in the pool was a bit much! Overall we had a great stay and i would return.
