Me and my partner stayed here late May early June this year (2012). This hotel is so badly run, there were to few staff and in fact it seemed all the jobs were done by two people. The woman who did breakfast, cleaned and attended the pool was really nice and very friendly but massively over stretched.
The problem with this hotel is the management. There are also a few dodgy bits of decoration too. There was also a few weird moments too, for example they told us their WiFi wasn't working and when we continued to ask when it was going to be repaired they admitted they didn't have WiFi. Also even though it was about 80 degrees when we were their we had to ask about 5 times to turn the air con on.
If you don't need anything from the hotel the place is great for hanging around and relaxing but, it comes at a fairly hefty price.
In all I don't think I would recommend this place as it is expensive and very badly run.
