We recently stayed here, but never again. We’re insisting on compensation of a full refund.
I’m not prepared to mention to many positives about this hotel, as they’re easily negated by the negatives.
We had the unfortunate company of an under 13s national girls basketball team staying at the same time, pretty much unsupervised, who, “every night” thought it was ok to run up and down the corridors banging and crashing doors until the early hours, one night until 02:45. Plus the screaming and shouting whenever they were around the pool area. Also, there was also only one lift working in this 12 floor hotel for the whole duration of our stay.
We complained formally to the manager about the noise, and the response we received was “what can I do?” “well, how about asking them to behave themselves or leave”
This was definitely not relaxing holiday. The location is also not particularly good, about 30-40 mins walk to the main town, and very little to do locally in the evening.
