I'm the type of traveller that errs on the side of bigger chain hotels, because of some hit and miss experiences with boutique hotels. But this hotel is a HIT.
Unlike chain hotels (thinking here Sheratons, Westins, Hyatts) where you need status, at the Amalif all room rates include FREE continental breakfast, help yourself, on your floor. Now I'm not talking lame breakfast, generous range of pastries (almond croissants, rasperry and walnut bread), cereals, fruit, quality Tazo teas, yoghurts. And all rooms include evening 5:00pm hotel lounge bar where alcoholic drinks and cocktails, antipasto and dips are served FREE. A great way to start your day, and kick off a night.
Rooms are clean, reasonably sized, cable TV etc etc. And they use quality Aveda shampoo/conditioner/etc none of that usual rubbish.
