Most were saved the night before and most didn't get used throughout the day. There are double the amount of guests to lounges available...

Very happy with the hotel in General, however rooms were at the front of the hotel and were very noisy with passing traffic at night! So I strongly advise to book a room at the rear with a pool view, it would be worth the extra money! Overall, very happy with the hotel

“We had a room at the front of the hotel. We sat out on the balcony for some of the day but kept the windows closed at night, there is a main road outside. As the room had very good air conditioning we didn't find this to be a problem.”
