Central pool was lovely, and not busy. Room was spacious and balcony attractive. Gym was good with air conditioning which was most welcome. Helpful reception gave advice for our visit to Lecce.

This hotel is good value for money but it isn’t 5 star ,it could be , with very little expense or effort to the hotel. 5 star should provide a turn down service with fresh towels. China coffee cups in room. Comfortable cushions on the sun loungers & you should be able to get towels by the pool & not have to take the mean , thin towel they provide in your room. All these things are easily fixed & would make for a better experience. The little snacks they provide with drinks at the bar are very good.

Great Hotel
Close to a wonderful small village with great restaurants and friendly bar - Rosella is very welcoming, otherwise close to nothing - you need to hire a car, which is perfect for us as we like to explore. Very helpful and friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble. Didn't eat in hotel or golf club restaurants but have previously and was excellent. Breakfast very nice, although European ' full English' its still very nice. There are two great outdoor pools (included). Hotel affiliated to a beach with a restaurant, its OK but we prefer their previous beach / restaurant (Puntarenas) so went there. They are happy for you to visit, and its slightly cheaper than the hotel one - again you need a car, although the hotel has a bus transfer to their beach if required. We have visited previously when Double Tree Hilton, its still the same place, great staff, great facilities BUT the SPA is now extra to enter. Previously you were free to wander in and out as you pleased (jacuzzi pool / steam / sauna / ice / etc), now its €15 each for 2 hours. Probably sufficient but we were disappointed so did not use on this visit. We do not expect free spa treatments, its just entry into the main area - seems silly as its open and staffed anyway.
