The hotel's location is superb, many rooms face the incredible archaelogical sites. The room we stayed had been recently upgraded/updated and was quite comfortable, with a large terrace facing the pool and archaeological sites.
The dinner in the hotel's outdoor dining room was in a great setting and very tasty but really overpriced.We only ate there because we had had a very long travel day and were too tired to leave the hotel.
The included breakfast is very poor, there was no fresh or canned fruit either day and the selection of breads etc. was not great. Furthermore, there was no hot food available and the service was not good. Some of the staff were rather snooty and not that helpful or accommodating.
We'd recommend the hotel mainly because of its location, which is fantastic.
