8/10 Very good

Rory, 2-night trip
Verified guest review

4/10 Fair

Complained about dirty sliding door entrace curtains and air conditioner that was not working. No feedback was given and the items were not adressed. Breakfast is great with freshly baked pastries and wide choices of items to eat Dinner is a buffet we tried it once and never again. They served bone hard pork and little pieces of fish that did not taste great at all! You can order from a set menu but are strongly encouraged to do the buffet, 1stly by their menu pricing and by the waiters.
