It was an overall pleasant experience - room was great, bright and clean. In room dining has a great selection and the food was delicioso! Just one thing that could've made this a perfect epxerience - when we arrived (an hour and some passed our check-in time at 2pm), at 3:30pm, we had to wait around 45 minutes for our room to be ready. Staff at the reception kept telling us "5 more minutes", and we were offered a free-drink voucher each for the wait. I mean, it would've been better if we could get into our room straight away without waiting! But overall an awesome experience and I definitely would not mind to stay again!!

The pool and lift were lovely, but the room left so much to be desired. We have stayed in nicer rooms for a lot less. Not to mention the tv, who puts a tv beside the bed? Also, for the price it only had free to air tv and Fox Sports. One other thing was that the bathroom wasn't very luxe for price (shower curtain, glass would have been more fitting for such a fancy hotel) and the pillows were unbelievably uncomfortable. Mattress was comfortable and location of hotel was good, but the room was not worth what we paid. Very disappointed.
