8/10 Very Good

Overall this was a nice stay for us, the hotel is outside the main part of the central area but they do offer a shuttle service, we didn’t mind walking so some days we walked others we used the shuttle. The hotel is kept clean, and the staff are super nice. Bar Staff, front desk and breakfast team were the ones that went above and beyond to help and also very nice. The Spa is good but not the best, it could do with some work especially steam room. Housekeeping I felt was hit and miss, whilst the room was cleaned daily not everything was always replenished, not sure if this was intentional or not, either way I’m sure if you asked for anything you would get it.
