We had a great stay at this hotel. Very good for family and the kids. The variety of restaurants were divine and the food and service are excellent. The view was serene and the facilities were kid friendly. We'll come back for another weekend getaway🙂

Very good rooms, very good food and very kind personnel. Surprise to my birthday in my room - one bottle of red wine and a chocolate cake! The only one problem is: the hotel is isolated by shops or other utilities, but with taxi itt is very easy to get to Marina Mall.
