Nice design, poor room
Posted Jun 10, 2014
Travelled with a friend on the last week of May '14. Exterior, location, lobby and design of the hotel can't be knocked. However, rooms weren't great - not very "homely" and comforting, though, I guess it goes with the theme of the hotel. Rooms need some serious servicing, not very well looked after. Service was fine throughout our stay, facilities were good, entertainment was mediocre and some facilities had to be paid for, e.g. indoor pool after 2:00pm and the gym. Water was cold in both outdoor and indoor pool. Food was limited and disappointing. "On the beach" is across the street and the beach wasn't great either. Weather was like a British summer, but obviously that had nothing to do with the hotel and the locals did say that May is usually much warmer.
Hotel exchange rates were not as good as airport rates, surprisingly.
