Amazing hotel!
We had a wonderful stay at the Royal Sonesta. From check in to check out the service was fantastic. We were offered a free upgrade and provided with soft drinks and a bottle of wine for the room. The room was spacious and clean and the on-site restaurant was lovely. The pool area was modern, tranquil and very clean. The hotel location was great, just 5 minutes walk to the main shops. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends/colleagues.

Great staff
Overall, staff was very friendly and helpful. Didn’t have information to know how to contact desk, needed to go lobby physically. Room was not cleaned after being gone from 9am to 1:30pm, requested for housekeeping to come at desk at 2:00pm. Returned at 5pm. Room was still not cleaned. Needed to ask for more towels at desk, towels were delivered. Notified reception in the morning and they apologized. Hotel was nice, just need to follow up with housekeeping.

Inadequate room cleaning/housekeeping service
We stayed here for 4 nights with a toddler- 24hr pool access was the best thing- as the toddler was awake at 6am! Room was large and comfy, amenities nearby and on the marathon route for supporting was great! Only bugbear was only one room clean/tidy after the first night and then no one came to service the room for the rest of the three nights- which for nearly £2k was a disappointment to say the least
Best things about hotel is 24hr access to a heated pool especially if you have a pool mad child
