4/10 Fair

pretty below standard hotel
The hotel in general was good, they had a seperate pool for children and adults which was not upheld, the adult pool was full of children… also no sunchairs there was about 4 in total. When questioned reception not much help… Second day there we ate in the restaurant and I got food poisning.. Having worked in restaurants 15 years of my life there is no excuse for bad hygene. My second day of two was spoiled because of this… at the time I was too sick to complain. The staff in general was attentive and very friendly.

I rented a Family suite and I did not like that the room with the king size bed did not have enough privacy.
