          Location, in the center of the city.

          To much noise from the bar. I expected a good party-location but not in my room.

        • Family with children
          6.6

          Clean, large rooms.

          Welcome desk not really friendly. It is a large resort so I suppose it is the reason, to many people are coming...

        • Single
          5.0

          Not clean! Cant check in until 2 PM. It took 40 min to check in because the staff were really slow. They dont inform that wifi only works on one device only, you cant swop in between. Theres no electric sockets in the room so you cant charge your mob during the night.

          Good delas in the bar and one free meal. Good location Pool, gym and laundry Good for backpackers on a budget Sorry wrote the good things here and reverse but cant bother to change now
