This was a stopover hotel arranged for us by Oceania cruises for our 10 day cruise on the Marina sailing Apr 22nd 2012.
All our transfers were pre-arranged from airport to Hotel, Hotel to cruise port.
Our first impressions was one of a beautiful Grand Hotel with much character, charm and creature comforts. Forgive the alliteration!
Could have easily stayed longer, but a very good initiation to this lovely property. Helpful staff, upgraded to a approx 400 sq ft suite - very nice indeed - equisitively equipped.
The buffett breakfast was simply to `die for`. Everything you could wish or could imagine - it was there - food was fresh, the hot items were hot, not lukewarm, well presented and served by delightful uniformed staff - with emphasis on service!
All in all a great start to what was an outstanding cruise!. Would certainly return!
