After my first stay at this hotel at the beginning of March, right after the opening, I now stayed a full week at the new Crowne Plaza Lido. Already in March I thought that the hotel was very good, but now it got even better. The staff is more experienced, the pool is functional and the smell of fresh paint in the room is gone. I think this hotel is great, especially if you like swimming. The pool is 33m long and is perfect for swimming long distances. Besides there is also a Sauna and a big area around the pool to relax. It is also possible to relax outside. Changing rooms, showers everything nice and clean.
Also the fitness center is very good and offers a good view.
In the pool area the Jacuzzi and the kids pool is not yet operational, but I guess these features will be available soon.
What I also liked is the dinner buffet (even so I usually don't like buffets very much). First of all they have a good selection of things, second many things are prepared fresh (for example fried noodles with vegetables and other things) and third many things are served at the buffet and you don't have to help yourself. Because many things are cooked fresh, one does not have to eat something which is already sitting there for hours (of course some things are still already cooked).
Everything else is in my opinion also very good. The rooms are nice, maybe not huge, but there is more than enough space to store a lot of clothes. The breakfast is very good with a big selection of things and last but not least the staff is very friendly and nice.
Right now I really don't know any negative things which I could mention.
I will for sure come back again to this hotel!
