You’ve asked a question within the community. The trip advisor members won’t be able to help you with this query. Contact the hotel direct, email would probably be best if you can’t get through on the phone :)

hi, I'm sorry but I didn't use the pool. I think they stop taking food orders at 10pm. We arrived at the hotel late, about 8pm. It was gone 9 before we sat in the restaurant and although it was busy we were served quickly. I had a pizza but only ate half. they're quite large and full of toppings.
