Upon arrival we discovered no pool or spa was operating - our reason for choosing this hotel! No apology or refund was given. All photographs, lists of ammenities etc state there is a pool and spa. Then we were given a street facing room although I paid extra for a premium pool view. Receptionist said she would see what she could do and call my room - there was NO call. Otherwise nice room and friendly staff.
For a family of 6, the sofa bed is not good as a bed for 2 adults. The service is very good in all ways,
We has a member got sick and need an ambulance. The gentleman behind the desk did a a lot of help so that our member was sent to hospital on time.
