The location was about the only thing we liked about this hotel. The VIP status Expedia advertises wasn't acknowledged at all. I had emailed the hotel and asked to have wine and chocolates added to our room for my spouses birthday and that did not happen. They did leave a birthday card instead. The room we 1st got put into had a leak in the ceiling. We did get moved right away once it happened but the second room was beside the cleaners area and at 7am the doors would start slamming. The rooms are not sound proof at all and also have no air conditioning. The pool is very small and you now require a booked time to swim due to covid restrictions and the times are hard to get. We did not eat at the restaurant because the first night we got there it took 30 min just to get a drink.
