As others have noted, the layout of this hotel is that of an American motel, with doors to rooms leading directly off the car park. Check in was efficient and friendly, and the room itself, with a Mediterranean tiled floor, clean and adequate though not exciting nor outstandingly comfortable. Our room was on the ground floor, and sliding doors led to a small deck. But oh the hedges! Hedges in a hotel have never caused me to comment in the past, so I should explain. Each of the ground floor rooms had a strip of lawn the width of the patio (about two metres) leading down to a small lake. Either side of this strip were hedges over two metres high, and these had not been cut for a while, so the outlook was even more restricted. Why on Earth would they have done that? I have never seen anything so ridiculous; it completely negated the benefit of a patio and left us with little more than a glimpse of the small lake.
We didn't have breakfast in the hotel, but the breakfast room was large and light. We had dinner twice in the restaurant of the adjacent casino (it's all the same business and the hotel is situated in a corner of the casino carpark). Both dinners were excellent, well served and reasonably priced.
But those hedges! less
