Business traveller, Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Overall, a really good hotel. Location is fantastic, with direct access to the beach. Breakfast was quite good. Would recommend. Things that we found unacceptable for a 4 star hotel: - Check-in - it was a terrible experience. We waited for about 1h, at one point there were 4 other workers looking idle at the person on the computer checking in. - No parking - had to drive around and pray for a place. This ruined the experience. - coffee is an extra for breakfast (!!) - juices were not fresh on breakfast.
