We had a lovely stay. The service overall was good, just a couple of hiccups as I think they were a little too busy- and maybe couldn’t manage the post covid rush? Service was a bit slow and you have to chase for few things. Apart from that all ok

3* hotel with 5* gardens - no luxury experience!
The hotel is set in beautiful gardens which are the best thing about the place. The hotel is run on the cheap and everything about it is cheap - Nescafé in the rooms, broken sun loungers, swimming pools not heated, breakfast rationed, pool towels rationed to 1 per person. When I stayed only one restaurant was open and the food was inedible - greasy and disgusting. Also the restaurant chairs were so uncomfortable that one was in agony after 30 minutes. Basically a three star hotel in 5 star grounds. Definitely not worth the €300 per night.
