It´s a nice hotel with a good swimming pool but it´s not a five star hotel or a resort. It is focused on quantity and not quality. The employees are friendly but not oriented to the consumers need. The bar stop´s at 1 AM and the hotel does not have enough animation, probably because it seemed to me that they were more oriented to families programs.
The food isn´t bad but it far from the usual “resort” style, with several meals similar during the week. In the bar I also noticed that they have a small menu and lack off choices.
The Hotel it´s a little far from any cultural and shopping areas but they have several programs that we can do thought agencies that operate in the area but they seemed a little expensive.
They have an ATM machine but it´s wasn´t working, a problem that we should be solved in the interest of the gests.
In resume - not bad – specially concerning the relation between the quality and the price but it´s far from being a FIVE STAR hotel according to the European standards.
