Just left the hotel after 20 days stay and I must say that "value for money" wasn't there.
First issue was the room, very small, we booked 3 rooms for the whole family, and the one where we were supposed to be 4 was the smallest which was a complete nonsense, we had to switch ourselves between family members.
AC was also a big problem during the whole stay, I don't know if it is a way for the management to reduce cost but the power was at the minimum all the time. Despite daily complains, nothing has been done.
Finally the food was really bad, no tast, no variation from a day to another.
I would have rated well this hotel if the price was lower, then it would have been fair, but with what we had to pay there was no value for money at all.
One last comment is on the staff at the reception and at the bar, I must say that it is probably the most sympatic and pleasant I have ever met. S special thanks to Miguel who's really a customer oriented person and to the barman (I don't recall his name) who was working at the bar close to the reception in the evening, it it people like them who makes you feel on holidays, thanks a lot gents.
