The new wing of the hotel is modern, stylish, equipped with cable tv and smells amazing! There are porters everywhere to assist you will directions and all are very friendly, engaging and make polite conversation. Slight construction noise can be heard in the older wing but this will not be for much longer. Large pool, over 20 sun beds, vast...

Awesome hotel. For a lot if reasons. First of all it is really close to the airport, making it a good option if traveling early. The rooms are huge, nicely furnished, the swimming pool is amazing and the spa is really good. I highly recommend the buffet as dinner option, especially the dessert table. On top of everything the staff...

This is a old hotel near the airport. You are pretty much stuck in the hotel as there is nothing nearby. The hotel is about a km inside from the main road. So you will be dependent on hotel transport if you want to go somewhere. Convenient for a airport transit.

Good hotel!! Recently renovated with a whole new building with very good, clean and spacious rooms. The hotel is quiet and close to the airport, so it's a perfect choice if you're planning to rest directly after your flight or if you have a short flight connection. A gardened area surrounds the hotel buildings, so if you like to have...
