My husband and I stayed at the Armada hotel while attending a wedding, a brief overnight stay.
The hotel is very tasteful, and in a beautiful location, The views from the restaurant are spectacular, and well worth the trip. The rooms themselves were comfortable, and the food was exceptional (both the wedding meal and the breakfast buffet).
There is no wireless connectivity in the rooms, and phone reception was very patchy, but as this was not a business trip, this was more of an inconvenience than anything else. The front desk staff were very accommodating and offered to let me use their phone when I asked about phone coverage.
The biggest disappointment for me was the room service charges. As parents of a young toddler, we were looking forward to breakfast in bed as a rare treat. However, as I was completing the breakfast card, I noticed that there was not simply a small tray charge (which would have been fine) but the tray charge was a. high and b. per person, and there were supplements on some of the breakfast options. This meant that for my husband and I to have breakfast in the room, we would have been charged up to 20 euro extra, which is more than double the charge in anywhere else I have ever stayed. We were both quite disappointed with this aspect, and it spoiled an otherwise lovely stay.
