Visited 18 months ago and since then there seems to be some good improvement.
The room was clean and very spacious, however the bathroom is getting dated. A plate of fresh fruit placed in room, and a baby cot brought up after calling 3 times.
Dinner buffet was excellent with varied choices including a good selection of seafood. The restaurant staff were not rude, but not pleasant.
Wake up call was reliable and punctual, and check out was smooth.
Main issue is still no free wifi. I can't believe a hotel nowadays still charges for wifi. In my case, it didn't work, so after I called reception, I was transferred to a call centre to get it to work. Took almost 25 minutes until I got wifi which i had to pay for.
Location is good, near the beach and the trade centre, with some choices for dinner.
The pool was clean but the water was too cold to swim at 4pm.
Going in the right direction, get free wifi and staff should be more friendly.
