Recently stayed here for four nights. Had a three bedroom apartment. It was a reasonable price and included breakfast. In general the service was good, food in the restaurants was fine, albeit a little expensive. The apartment was a good size, and big enough for us, 4 adults and one teenager. The only real issue we had was that the place is beginning to look a bit tatty and needs some work. The windows gave on to the square in front, but it was rather difficult to see out of them as they had not been cleaned in a long while. Also, whoever decided that wallpaper was suitable for a hotel in the tropics was not very clever. It is fraying a lot and coming off the walls in places. The gym seemed well-equipped, but not all of the equipment worked very well. We had stayed here about 13 years ago, and it seemed quite palatial then. It seems however that little or no maintenance has taken place since then. Having said that, the important things like aircon and water pressure were both good and when we had a broken shower it was fixed straight away. The cleaners were efficient and provided plenty of towels. The whole place just needs a bit of a revamp, especially externally, then it will be fine again.
