Extremely disappointing!

Night-duty check in person was extremely discourteous & downright rude!Emphatically claimed WE DID NOT HAVE A BOOKING when we phoned from AD airport!Upon arrival at hotel insisted the hotel had not been paid by [...] & therefore he couldn't give us the room we thought we had paid for....Check took in excess of 1 hr 30 min...He failed to offer us an apology and did not explain the hotel amenitiesHe demanded a huge amount of cash to secure any costs we may incurHe had a porter scurry up to our room to lock the mini-bar to prevent us from actually bringing more revenue to the hotelAll in all a most embarrassing & humiliating experience!!

Lovely big room without a view

I was on business and stayed less than 24 hours. The only thing I found expensive and not good value for money was the food!

Excellent Experience

I was here for a short time but found the amenities to be excellent. Responsive service and a location close to the airport. As soon as they finish the roads it will be a a short drive to the airport too.
