Guest reviews for President Hotel

Everyone (2)
3 out of 5
Diligent squad of housekeeping staff determined to deliver excellent service. Pricey yet perfect feast of spaghetti don alfonso, langoustines, zucchini ravioli and slices of sweet chocolate pizza. The poolside breakfast buffet is dreamlike in its scope and setting. Fringed by palm trees, the turquoise pool is as regal as the rest, decorated with shimmering fish-scale tiles, surrounded by a neat cavalry of spotless white sun loungers. Exquisitely kept, the pool area is soothingly silent with a discreet army of staff who will check your expression for evidence of ‘want’.

Fawlty Towers

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Stay somewhere else.
This establishment makes Fawlty Towers look like a Ritz! Filthy grimy rooms, with damaged furniture and unhelpful staff, to top it off the room door had part of the lock ripped off and was not secure, but the staff were not interested.
