Lovely clean, modern hotel with friendly staff
Lovely hotel with friendly staff and clean, modern rooms. Nice to have a large bath and walk-in shower in the bathroom to cater for all needs. Only minor point is the swimming pool - about the size of a hot tub!

Is this really a 4* hotel?
If you ever stay at this hotel do not stay in a standard room. Pay extra to stay in the Superior Deluxe room. It boggles my mind that a hotel can have rooms that are so chalk and cheese. Our first night we were in a standard room. The shower is in the room so as a family we always had to go out of the room if someone wanted to shower. Never mind the horrible disgusting fishy smell coming from the shower that permeated the whole room. The bed was also not clean with marks on the pillow covers and hairs on the bed cover. I was extremely disappointed at this supposedly 4* hotel!!!!! We immediately asked for an upgrade but the hotel was full and we could only change the following night. The upgrade made a slight difference but we still found the cleanliness of the hotel seriously lacking from dirty towels in the bathroom, dirty dishes at the buffet breakfast, a dirty elevator with popcorn lying all over the floor. This is not what you expect from a 4* hotel. I will not be in a hurry to stay here again.
