I had to stay here after President Obama decided to take over the Serena Hotel. I was very pleased I did. It is a very nice hotel indeed. professional staff on reception and a big cheerful guy called Arnold on the door(Please buy him a new shirt). He deserves it.
The rooms are beautiful, if a little small. The courtyard itself is very nice. The pool is more of a splash pool than a swimming pool but Ok. The breakfast has a wide selection. I wish the staff would be a bit more cheerful and energetic in the restaurant at breakfast time.
The only downside is the distance from town but the traffic is bad everywhere there.
I will stay here again on my next trip. Wifi is free and reasonably fast
