This hotel is not English friendly. The reception staff were able to speak some English but definitely preferred NOT to. I did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment on food, but I know the breakfast was E20 which is expensive. The hotel pool did
not open until 11 and closed at 8 it had lots of leaves . The sun beds were ok, but no natural shade and you have to put up your own parasol - no one rushes to help at this Hotel!
Having said all negatives, the room itself was immaculately clean, bathroom lovely and ac worked effortlessly. It served me well for my visit which wa to visit friends.
