A mid range 3 star hotel.
Posted Jul 24, 2016
I'll start by saying that the staff at The Lince were friendly and attentive. They spoke very good English. The hotel is showing signs of its age and is dated, very run down in places. The air conditioning in our first room (6th floor, executive floor) wouldn't go lower than 28 degrees. The hotel staff suggested that we didn't know how to use it properly, in a slightly demeaning but friendly way. Having satisfied their suggestions we were moved to a room on the same floor. Again the air conditioning was not great, albeit 24 degrees. As it had only been up and running for 30 minutes we gave it a chance. Over night it dropped to 22 degrees and on our return from a day trip it was a near icy 21 degrees, where it stubbornly remained. The only other real complaint about the rooms were the shower heads. Cheap and awful, turning good pressure and flow rate (I removed the shower head to check) to a misdirected dribble. Apart from that the views were nice, the beds fairly comfortable and it did what it needed to do, no more.
Breakfast was limited and provides no nice surprises in selection or quality. We did request to have breakfast in our room on the last morning (filling out the form and leaving it on the door before 2am) but nothing came of it. Overall breakfast was as I expected from a 3 star hotel.
The biggest disappointment was the pool area. The decking in places was broken to the point that it was dangerous. The sauna needed condemning.
