    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    I loved this hotel! The grounds and pool areas are beautiful. The rooms are enormous. The buffet meals and drinks were excellent. The shuttle bus to the historic city centre was efficient and convenient. The hotel was great value. Don’t believe the negative reviews about this site. They are people who are never satisfied and should stay home instead of travelling. I would definitely return.
