We arrived at 11am but were not able to check in until 2.30pm. Despite knowing we were there hanging around they made no effort whatsoever to get a room ready for us a little early. Luckily there is an outside area and bar which are ok to sit in (though the radio is very irritating in the bar as it is talking instead of music which doesn't go well with reading/chatting).
The outside pool, despite being right next to the road and car park, is actually quite a nice little pool as well, just a shame that when using it you are being watched by all the business people smoking cigarettes in between meetings.
When finally allowed to check in, we found the room was comfortable enough, although the kitchenette was not all that well set up - could have done with kettle, toaster and hob. The shower was also a little bit weak though not too bad.
The absolute worse part was the spa. As we had had a heavy weak travelling we just wanted to stay near the airport and chill out for the last day, so we had booked a 'cocooning suite and spa' deal, thinking we could spend the afternoon chilling out in the spa. When we finally checked in we went up to the spa and were told the pool wasn't open and to come back at 4pm. At 4.30pm we went back and were told it still wasn't ready and to come back in an hour, despite the fact that the spa closed at 7pm. We were also told we had to get changed in our room and walk down in only our costumes and bathrobes because, despite the fact that there was a changing room (a open unisex one!) with lockers, we as paying hotel guests were not allowed to use them!
So 5.30pm we are finally allowed in the spa, and was it worth the wait - hell no, it wasn't. The 'swimming pool' is so small that all you can really do is tread water in there, and it isn't even warm. There is no jacuzzi function either. We could have produced much the same effect by staying in the room and filling up the bath with cool water.
The hammam is NOT a proper hammam. It is in fact a very average steam room.
The whole place has dark brown walls which look like they have mouldy patches everywhere, the floor is dirty with hair collected in all the drains.
We lasted 30 mins and then went back to our room disappointed. Not worth the extra euros.
There aren't really many places to eat in the area. When trying to order a club sandwich for 12 euros, it turned out it was in fact a ham salad sandwich and did not even come with french fries. To call this a club sandwich would most likely come under false advertising in the UK.
