Breakfast was good, except no bacon (Canadian bacon doesn't count). Nice pool. One of the three buildings was under construction, but that did not affect my stay.
Things were all good.
The main hotel Areca Lodge was looking like it was out of order, so I had my room in the Evergreen Hotel behind the Areca Lodge, which is now a part of Areca Lodge company. I booked a deluxe double room with pool view. Due to the surrounded high buildings it was very quiet there. A good place for sleeping while the hotel is surrounded by loud beer bars and still close enought to them to have a fast possibility to go out. I think also the pool of the evergreen hotel is better. The high buildings are still far away enough to bring the sunlight during the day time to the pool. That isn't the case in all the other hotels. For example 'Sunshine Residence' (maybe 1 hour per day sunlight at pool + loud street noises). The TV has HDMI input, if you desire to connect your own devices at the rainy days.
During my holiday I do not need a bath tub. Hard to get in and out for just a shower. The shower head is fix installed in my room. It's just adjustable a little bit. The shower tabs are both warm and cold possitioned direct below the head. I have to jump one step back after activation or the water brushes my face immediatly (1,82m). It's possilbe to jump in from the side, but that makes the bathroom wet all over the floor. No good construction. I recommend to replace the tub by a shower. For taking a bath I prefer the pool, instead of sitting alone in a dark room without sun. That appears senceless. At breakfast the bread was very dry. I guess, because they store it inside a climatic room. :( My room hat a loud standard fridge. It was very big, if somebody needs room for cold drinks. But during the night it's noisy a bit. There exists special silent fridges for hotel rooms, but this one is not none of them.
Nice pool big. Location really good. Food was ok for type of hotel. And price was good
Wifi a little hit and miss. Pillows lumpy and uncomfortable. Lots of building work going on so gym closed and reception closed of so had to use different one. Air conditioning machine on balcony blows hot air on you when on balcony. Bit dated with key for door on a fob not card . Breakfast finishes really early. I stayed delux room
Not bad location. Cleaning staff very good. Reception staff very good. Nice pool. Despite the shortcomings of the room (we would have booked another hotel had we known in advance) it was a great stay.
Main hotel was being refurbished so we were in a partner hotel around the back. Very small balcony with a great view of the refurbishment work during the day (the only view). No curtains so we had to keep the drapes shut for privacy during the day. Shower was in the bath rather than purpose built.
Kindness. Cleaning. Good food. Mobility.
