Imad, ie1 night business trip

Nice hotel with low speed WiFi
At check in i got the wrong type of room, but that was solved directly. Big room, nice staff. I needed to work at the room with my PC and send documents by e-mail. I´m sorry to say that the WiFi on this hotel is the slowest i seen in about 15 years.Example: about 5-10 minutes to synchronize Outlook and 10 minutes for two e-mails with enclosures to leave the outbox and that for a size of e-mail normally not even bouncing on the outbox..
Anders, us4 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Excellent but not perfect
I’ve stayed in the southern sun numerous times but I was here most recently on a 10 day quarantine after arriving from outside the country. I asked for a non smoking room, which I got but clearly other rooms on the floor were smoking as I could smell it very strongly. The staff were very quick to respond to my every request, they went above and beyond. My only complaint was I had to constantly call for something. Instead of a regularly scheduled drop off of water, towels, clean cutlery and cups etc. I did feel like if this was all scheduled to be replaced each day I could have saved calling down every few hours for something else. I was stuck in the room for ten days so I didn’t have the bedding changing, maybe there is a way for you to change this or have a room swap after 5 days etc. Again these are tiny complaints and would just improve the stay from excellent to Perfect. I would always recommend this hotel to anyone. Food is great, room is good size. Seperate bath and shower. Bed is comfortable. Restaurants are great. And everything is reasonably priced.
