The service at the Steigenberger was exceptional. Our room was upgraded on arrival and all of our needs were taken care of. The staff consistently went out of their way to make us feel welcome and showed incredible hospitality. Free poolside fruit and water was also a very welcome surprise.

Liked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Our bathroom had some hair in the sink when we arrived. Our room was situatied below the staff room which was noisy at night. We moved room, our new room also had hair in the sink! Staff wouldn't help me arrange a PCR test for my return flight. Very basic gym, lacks equiptment. The hotel is not worth the high prices, given the above complaints.
