We stayed in the hotel 6 years ago. But it has lost much of its gloss, looking more like a motel than a supposed 5 star hotel.
Our room must have had the worst view in the complex ... looking over a canvas covered mound of dirt. No view of the sea
The buffet meals were ok though and good value.
Of course the Casino as part of the hotel was convenient for a flutter.
Management will lose returning customers in our opinion, unless they treat all their customers with the room standards they expect.
We won't be staying there again.

Unless you wish to play in the Casino, we suggest you stay in the city centre with the convenience of walking to all attractions and views of the city and sea.
