They have loud music in the garden facing the rooms in the back. If you need to go to ben before midnight this not the hotel for you. The hotel is close to some restaurants and you can smell them from the rooms. They have sold cards to many people for the swimming pool and the recreational facilities.

This has probably become my favourite hotel; pure 5* luxury. The design is modern, the hotel immaculately clean and the staff extremely professional. Add to this some first class restaurants and the most luxurious spa I have visited and you have a simply amazing place to stay. This was all for less than 100 Euros per night.
