Frustrante! Problemas de abastecimiento de agua
El hotel ha perdido el brillo y categoría que alguna vez posiblemente tuvo, hace décadas. El mantenimiento es básico, y claramente necesita una enorme inversión para renovar su mobiliario, adecuar las habitaciones y espacios comunes, y crear comodidades y servicios. En mi habitación sale un hilo de agua en la ducha, y a pesar de reclamar inmediatamente, nunca lo repararon. De día y de noche y en todo horario. Tuve que pedir un recipiente para juntar agua y bañarnos "a tarrito". La atención es excelente, muy amable y servicial. La higiene muy buena. La ubicación bárbara. El desayuno adecuado al precio. Y juegos de mesa para la familia, algo desvencijados, pero disfrutables aún. Esto mitiga en parte la mala experiencia, pero no es suficiente cuando existen problemas estructurales y tan marcados como el abastecimiento de agua. Espero que puedan resolverlo, invertir fuerte en la renovación, y volver a brillar. Hasta tanto eso no ocurra, no volvería ni lo recomendaría.

Site remarquable.
Proche de la plage, vue sur la mer, accueil très aimable. L'hotel demande un entretien serieux pour répondre aux attentes actuelles.
