Arriving at the hotel, it looks very nice and so does the reception area. The rooms are in a modern style but a bit run down. Nevertheless, they have everything you need. The only "weird" thing was that our romm had a jacuuzi (which in itself is great) but no real shower, making it difficult to shower properly.
The outdoor pool was ok but it might have needed new filters as the water was not super clean. It doesn't help that the pool is sorrounded by tress so leaves etc fall into the water. The garden (lawn etc) needed a bit of moving and weeding, though.
The indoor wellness area was fine but nothing special. I liked that children are allowed between 9 and 12. It gives them a chance to try it out but at the same time gives the adults have come there a chance for some peace.
The breakfast had pretty much everything one could want - from bread to cakes, cereal to sausages and scrambled eggs. One tip, though - instead of taking coffee from the machine, ask the waiter to bring you a cappucino or whatever you want. They are happy to do so but it isn't something they advertise.
All in all, the hotel was ok but it doesn't quite live up to its 4 stars. And I wouldn't pay the normal full price it - that it isn't worth.
