A very disappointing experience. We booked our trip in April 2019 yet when we arrived on December 28th we were told the hotel was fully booked and we would have to stay in a 3* that night. The other hotel was 15 minute walk away with luggage and although the receptionist halfheartedly offered transport, this took so long we ended up walking anyway. Thankfully the substitute hotel (Topaz) was nice and we returned to the hotel for the remaining three nights without any issues. That was until our last night on New Years Eve. Before we were due to head in to town our key card stopped working and the card reader started beeping loudly every 2 seconds. After calling the staff a security guard came to look at the door - and unable to solve the problem - gave us an actual key to open the door. When asked about the annoying noise the response was "don't worry it will be loud anyway tonight being NYE". As it happened when we returned to the hotel at 1am the partying had stopped and we were left to spend our last night struggling to sleep without anyone present to a) solve the problem or b) offer a genuine apology. Just what we needed before a long trip home the next day. I notice one of the managers of the hotel frequently replies to these reviews. I wish they were more on the ball at the hotel as there were no attempts to communicate or apologise for our substandard stay.

There is no way on this earth that this was a 4 star hotel, very very disappointed. Not even tea or complimentary coffee in the room. Will definitely not return and may not use Expedia again if it classes this as 4 star, more like a 2. Look at reviews on trip advisor, all negative feedback there I can agree with

    The best thing about the hotel is the name, everything else was a complete shamble from the moment we checked in. The staff at the reception when we arrived was probably the most unwelcoming, unfriendly and cold, a robot would have done a better job. If we thought that was a one off, we certainly had more surprises to come, as we soon discovered that the Free Wifi that was advertised prior to us booking on the website was none existent as we were required to pay 2 Euros per Day for each device if we wanted to use WiFi. If that was not enough, on getting to our room the standard and cleanliness can only be described as appalling with broken furniture, dirty pillowcases, bed covers, duvets and stained and dirty mattresses and mattress protectors. I have got pictures which i showed to the Manager who seem disinterested in my complaint, but was more interested in blaming the poor standard and housekeeping in our room on "the foreign housekeepers". We got woken up one morning because they wanted to change curtains as part of their monthly routines. On another occasion we went to use the Indoor Pool and it was freezing cold, on complaining at the reception about this, we were simply told someone will have a look later. No apologies nothing. Poor standards, poor level of service, the atmosphere in the hotel was just unfriendly and uncaring. When my 10 year son was asked to rate the standard of our room and the hotel out of 10, he scored it a minus 1.
