Choose your board basis
I will try to summarize.
Staff: 10/10 except for the receptionist when you explain that in the middle of a pandemic 300 people in a restaurant is a risk.
Installation: 7/10 everything clean and what I expected.
Food: 4/10. this is a big problem in my opinion. I understood that people prefer to eat without salt, but food without flavor has no sense. In whatever case everyday they had something different.
Drinks: 5/10. Every drink was prepared in advance and not diversity.
Covid measures: 0/10 in the restaurant. They have a scheduled when book your room but later on this is a fake. You can go at whatever time. Problem, 300 at the same time in the restaurant. Everyone without face mask and no ventilation. At the end we had no breakfast
Covid measures: 7/10 hotel. Security people checking face mask. Alcohol gel everywhere. But no separation in the swimming pool and the hotel was full or at least 500 guests.
I understand that a hotel is a company that make money but you can force the timing in the restaurant, add a CO2 counter to check the ventilation and open every window and door. It’s better to get less money and don’t close the hotel in 2 months.
In a non covid pandemic I would give a 3.5 over 5.
I’m definitely disappointed with my stay at this hotel. With my wife we were to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary during our stay here but it was spoiled by the atmosphere in the hotel and unhelpful stuff.
Let’s start one by one:
Summarizing, not a hotel that I would recommend to anyone. Staff is not supportive, food rather poor, atmosphere tense due to COVID. Hotel is new and that’s the only positive here, but you won’t be able to enjoy it.
We stayed as this hotel for 11 days and even though we were a bit worried due to covid19 i need not have worried, we couldn't have asked for better. The staff were brilliant and the food was very good, the family suites were very clean and a good size and the kids loved the slides and entertainment, everything was kept exceptionally clean even down to steaming the reception furniture every day there was something for everyone will return in the future
