                            We liked the staff - nothing was too much trouble for them. They were kind and courteous without being intrusive. The ambience of the hotel was particularly pleasing; beautifully designed and appointed - everything to a very high standard. We enjoyed every single moment spent in the hotel.

                            The pool area for lounging and having some drinks. It has a lovely modern style, very classy.

                            The cocktails were very overpriced because they were not well made, just alcohol with fruit juice and a piece of fruit added. 9.50 euros for this was was too much. I would not have expected to pay more than 6 euros for those. The hotel hosted a wedding on the saturday night we were there and it was a huge inconvenience to the guests. It was in the pool area so we had to vacate early for them to set up. I understand this and didn't mind this part but the wedding was held outside in the pool area that the rooms directly look over, with large speakers for loud music erected in this area. None of the celebrations took place inside, they were all outside in this pool area. The music was so loud, even during the dinner, that my partner and I had to use ear plugs to try and sleep at about 11:30pm when we arrived back after a night out. Thank goodness we had some because I feel very bad for those who did not have ear plugs. The loud music lasted until well after midnight before they turned it down a bit. I don't know what time the music stopped because thankfully by then I got to sleep due to the earplugs. I woke at 01:30 to use the bathroom and it was still going. I think it is poor form for a hotel to do this when they cannot contain the noise and a massive hindrance to the guests.

                            all are great, but the location quite far away from the city spots

                            the hotel was easy walking distance to town centre and taxis. The room was very comfortable and clean. Front desk service very helpful and friendly. Good value for money would definitely stay here again.

                            The absolutely best thing about the hotel is the human element.The staff. They are superb. Very friendly, very polite, always helpful, always smiling.

                            I did not care too much for the location. But I guess it was in the center, so easily accessible which is why I chose it in the first place.

                            The room was small, although it was supposed to be a superior double room.

                            Excellent facilities. Staff can be friendlier in their service and less automative.

                            Staff should learn how to smile more and show more warmth and friendliness.
