What a disappointment!!! Website looks fantastic but you very soon on arrival realise you have wasted your money. Rooms are old and dated. Paint peels off in places. No air conditioner, no minibar, no fresh drinking water available in rooms. The little coffee station in your room gives you the idea of being in the army or in boarding school....
