I would not suggest this hotel being 5 Star but rather a very good 4 star hotel. We went there for 4 nights and we were in mixed feelings before arriving after reading a few of the reviews here on Tripadvisor. But we arrived and everything went very smooth with check-in and we got our room very fast although it was a lot of guest coming at once.
We had half-pension and we dont really have any complaints about the meals. The breakfast had a good variety of food (a big buffé) and we decided to not eat the hotel every evening of own choice. They also had 2 resturants within the big resturant which one was asian and the other italian. We tried the asian and it was totally OK, not a wow experience but I wouldnt complain if this was food a would get on a mid-budget asian resturant.
They were 3 pools on the facility, one inside-pool, two outside. We decided to sit around the pool inside the hotel area. A lot of space for tanning although a lot of people (its by the way no the pool you see on most pictures, this one is actually more beautiful).
The rooms where also very nice with one big minus (and I guess the most important part), The bed was extremely hard and for thoose who like soft beds this is really not to prefer. But the room had a very nice little balcony where we could enjoy a glass of whine before we rounded up the evening with just a 3 minute walk to the casino in the area.
A few other minuses were that you need to give a security deposit on bath towels to the pool (something I am not familiar with). The elevators were terrible and didnt work most of the time (One worked but took extremely long time to arrive).
Its located in a great area, very close to the city centre and just a 15 minute walk from the Old Town where we spent most of the time. Nice staff who helped with the most.
All in all a good 4 Star Hotel that I can recommend most families and couples above 25+
