Very nice rooms. Check-in and check-out perfunctory rather than warm. Bar expensive. A rip off. Pool closed for a party which was very annoying indeed as we were there to relax and the Adults-only pool was PACKED. No one very apologetic or willing to compensate. Otherwise a very upmarket place. We were satisfied overall.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We appreciate your positive comments, and we are pleased that you had a good stay overall. However, I apologize for the inconveniences that you experienced during your stay. We feel that our bar offers a varied selection of drinks at a competitive price; we regret that you were not completely satisfied in this respect. We do have two spectacular outdoor swimming pools with terraces. One of these is shared with the Royal Polo Club for adults, only. We have been experiencing unusually hot weather, as I am sure you will appreciate. We are saddened to read your comments about our hospitality and service. We are usually known for our attentive and friendly team who treat each guest with the same respect. We are truly sorry you felt differently. Despite this, we hope that you will stay with us again in the future. Kind regards, Octavio Gamarra, General Manager

Zentral gelegenes Hotel

Pros: der Garden und die Umgebung.
Cons: die Zimmer, der Service und keinen Garagen Preis.
Das Hotel liegt zwar sehr zentral, was auch gut ist. Aber ein 5 Sterne Hotel ist es weniger. Die Zimmer verschmutzt, im Bad war einiges defekt. Für jede Kleinigkeit muss man drauf zahlen, was bei einen 5 Sterne Hotel nicht sein darf. Sehr enttäuschend hätte mir mehr erwartet für diesen Pries .

Urlaub mit meiner Freundin

Das Hotel war supper und riesig es hat alles was man braucht und Wlan überall supper schnell auch bei der Poolanlage. Die Mitarbeiter sind sehr freundlich. Bis zum Strand fährt man etwa 20 Minuten mit Taxi das ist ein bisschen weit aber sonst supper.

Grand luxe!

Très bel hôtel, personnel irréprochable. Piscine intérieure et salle de gym très agréables, tout comme le jardin de l'hôtel. Le seul bémol est la localisation, quelque peu excentrée, mais le métro conduit au centre en moins d'une demi-heure.
