After reading the many good reviews of this hotel we had decided to book. Unfortunately it did not quite meet our expectations, since they were somewhat higher after reading the reviews.
The rooms seemed up to date, however to our surprise you enter the room through the bath room area, to get into the bedroom. The doors are of thin glass and everything could be heard from the shower and water closet area, so if this is your first date, you may want to think twice.
Disappointing was the breakfast morning frenzy. You are in a room with lots of people. It is indoors on the 7th floor only, and not outside. The buffet does have a large selection of food.
To our surprise, women were coming in their bathing suit tops (with some sort of bottoms), which we found distasteful at the breakfast, especially since they were not the model types, which may have worked out better.
The staff around the hotel is quite friendly. Instead of many Germans as we read in the reviews, we thought their were many Eastern European speaking people.
The worst evening we had was with a Russian speaking group playing very loud music in their room, into the later evening. Eventually they did stop, when other guests shouted at them.
Otherwise location is good, not many restaurants around the immediate area, however Puerto Portals is about a 10min drive and there are several good restaurants in that area.
We definitely can not recommend the hotel Krystal restaurant. The wine was warm, and the food quality below average.
