Positive Reviews

Fantastic food

Most guests rave about the on-site restaurant and many people come from all over the city to dine here as well. The food is praised for being delicious and high-quality. Each meal is served buffet-style and offers a varied selection that leaves guests coming back again and again. Guests especially enjoy the meriendas.

Outdoor recreation

The heated outdoor pool is a major highlight for travellers. It is also very popular with kids and families on holiday. Families also like that there is a children's playground on site.

Convenient location

Guests like that the hotel is close to the city yet just outside the noise and traffic. According to reviews, some attractions, such as the botanical gardens, are within walking distance of the hotel. Travellers also mention that the nearby area is full of dining options, perfect for those who seek to try specialty foods.

Negative Reviews

Lack of air conditioning

Many guests say the rooms can get stuffy in the summertime and are disappointed that there are no rooms with an air conditioner to upgrade to. Although windows can be opened for fresh air, guests don't like doing so because of bugs and mosquitoes.

Slow service

Guests are often unhappy with the check-in and check-out process, finding it far too time-consuming even when there is no line. Some visitors also complain that the staff do not seem to be adequately trained to handle large amounts of customers.

Noise complaints

According to guests, the rooms are not the most soundproof. Visitors mention being bothered by next-door neighbours and even barking dogs or crowing roosters. Guests also warn that poolside events tend to result in loud, late-night music which is also audible in the rooms.
