      Over Rated Hotel

      Over-Rated for such a stay! Too expensive for what the hotel offers!! I guess this is the ugliest Kempinski you go to. Usually kempinski and especially when ur paying that rate can offer a different experience

      Experience of a 1 star hotel for the cost of 5

      Very expensive hotel against the service and experience you are receiving…. No good restaurants or entertainment during the night! Staff are not professional nor friendly!!!! Not the standard you can expect from a Kempisnki!

      The hotel is very nice, plenty of pools and one dedicated for Adults which is quite nice. The only thing that the was a bit annoying was the shower. But other than that it was an amazing hotel and service

      Just Okay

      The experience was not worth the nightly price the hotel charged. While the service staff were extremely professional and helpful, none of the guests wore masks inside, extreme overcrowding at all the pools, and overpriced food and drinks took away from the overall experience. On the particular weekend we stayed, we couldn’t justify the price difference from this hotel’s neighbors.
