Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
bad experience
The services provided by the hotel was really low. I checked in for the first night tired at 1 am, the first bedroom given had the flush broken. I have been reallocated to another bedroom with 2 single beds. The fridge wasn’t daily refilled So i had to go outside at 3am to buy some water, and in addition, the hover hasn’t been done during my entire stay. Let’s imagine the sand and the gliders on the floor. To close that, my bedroom was in front of the pool and the music as well as the services during the morning made some important noises.
