Stayed here with family (2 teenagers) for 4 nights 26-30, December, 2013. Our 2 rooms were booked by redeeming my Starwood points (I'm lifetime gold member) and found out that there is no way in Starwood system that you could have breakfast included if you are using your points. So in the restaurant the price for 4 people varied from EUR98,- to EUR128,-!! I checked the bill only at home, so I do not know why the difference in price... You could "pay" that with your points with 3 000 pts/person/bfast = so 12 000 for us every day. But when remembering that in for example in Asia you can book a room with 3000 points, the bfast price here is a scam.
The other huge letdown is the Wifi availability: there is no free wifi anywhere in the hotel, the price per hour is EUR 7,5/USD 10,-! Outrageous in 2014! For us and our kids a sure mood killer. I cannot recommend this hotel because of this fact for anyone. Not coming back.
