Equipments, emplacement, truly marvellous vila and pool
Staff was not very accomodant, and seemed annoyed at every question asked (while my numerous questions were mostly due to staff mistakes) there were several problems that affected our experience : we booked a room for three persons, yet the room was made for two (from the double bed to the two towels etc). When I asked where I would sleep they opened the sofa bed which was probably the worse bed I have ever slept in ! Not normal for such price in my opinion. Fortunately staff eventually changed our room after complaining. Also charged me more than normal price for a sandwich while I asked them not to put meat in it.. Which, if a mistake too, makes several mistakes for just a one night stay
Large selection of food for breakfast, big comfortable beds, pool area very nice. The location at first seems a bit rough around the edges but after our first day we felt completely safe.
I have never experienced a slower check-in process!
One of the staff was good enough to allow us take a shower at the spa after we checked out earlier
I booked a double room to find myself in a twin room. Safe box was not working.
The breakfast is delicious.
Getting to the hotel can take awhile. The street can get very busy.
Location, room was very clean.
