Nice, clean, accommodating place with excellent customer service.
However, we were charged to use the facilities, such as the spa (relaxation area) and the gym. The relaxation area could only be booked for 45 minute sessions. There was no interactive TV service-no movies! The restaurant changed its menu to a fixed menu within 2 days of our stay, which minimised our choice. From reading other people's reviews you may also be charged for using the tennis court. Pool table, computer use, and play station also charged which I feel for guests should be included. The double room we booked was a twin room with beds put together we a make-shift mattress.
Mini bus to town is free and helpful. Restaurant Brasserie Rosal at the back of hotel is a must.
If your looking for a hotel to do absolutely nothing in then this is the place for you.
We wouldn't return to this hotel due to the location. A car is necessary to see more.
If your looking for a no frills home style cooked meal go to Al Forne in the town. Piri pir chicken mmmmmmm! Beware of chili sauce so hot! But very yummy.
