    Everything was well maintained. Staff was helpful and professional. Grounds and pools were very nice. The presence of 2 restaurants and 1 lounge was a big benefit.

    Beds, breakfast, safety are well executed. The grounds are nice. Pool area is very relaxing and enticing. Not surprised as the brand always delivers well.

    Check in lady was very short and rude. Little explanation of what the hotel offered. Always they take your documents and walk away, there’s a lot of idle at the desk. It was really busy and one of the clerks was texting on his phone at the desk. The checkout was very similar with a gentlemen who kept going back and forth without offering much explanation of what was happening, it was almost as if he was purposely moving very slow after I told him I needed to know what was the delay because I had to go to the airport. Then he brought the invoice to me and was folding it very slow to irritate me even more. He asked me a very odd question... do you want the invoice in your name or a different name? I’d like to think that billing is to the person or company paying and not some made up customer.

    Beside Personal all was perfect

    Personal not attentively, not looking for new guest, not reacting in empty glasses, be free at checkin, but sending you through colleague where you have to stand in a row This is not handled like Hotel of such a class

    The room service and dinner we had from the restaurant was good. The hotel garden is really beautiful and decorated with nice plants. Outdoor pool was nice and relaxing.

    We arrived in the evening, checked in and went to our room. Came back to parking to go for dinner, realised that a car which was parked next us had hit our car. Asked from hotel staff to call traffic police to come, she said she called them and police will be there within 20 minutes. But after 40 minutes, when the car owner came to pick his car, they said police do not come to parking and she had not called them at all. We asked to check the camera but they said it is not possible before 8 am next day! Finally, they let the car owner to go and did nothing for us!!!! They did not have any procedure for such an incident. In general, the hotel is big and staff can not manage such a big number of guests. The breakfast was not good, also the cutlery and plates were not clean. The room assigned to is was smelly and very old fashion. Spa was very dirty and old fashion. You could find mold every where! For sure, it is not considered as a five star hotel!
