"So we were in this hotel for 1 week in December 2019. The first day seems everything OK, everybody warmly welcoming, nice, etc. But as you stay few days there, you notice that there is something fishy. Poor hygiene, old hotel. Definitely not worth the money. The buffet corner is open (no door to separate it from outside, so there is constant humidity because outside air is warm and humid and this food-corner is air-conditioned. The result is that all the food is constantly swimming and covered with water. If you come a bit later the food is really disgusting. The top of the disgust was a mold in a huge bowl (loaf) of parmesan. After we pointed this out to manager, they took the bowl back to the kitchen. Next day the same parmesan bowl was back. I was surprised, so I inspected it again. They had just collected huge moldy parts leaving the same cheese in the bowl. Of course lot of mold stayed there. Of course they should have thrown the whole thing away at once."

"everything excellent except upon leaving the system is not good. We missed the shuttle ferry and we were standing at the top of the hill for the ferry with no direction from staff. I haven't checked out at a front desk for 20 years but this hotel said it is mandatory on the last day when i asked why the boat left without us. There should be a big sign in your room that says mandatory check out at front desk so that kind of mistake doesn't happen."
