edalmann Business - TripAdvisor review

On the date of my arrival (May 20, 2024, at 8am) the receptionist who attended to me was rude, rude, unavailable and very aggressive. She did not provide me with information regarding access to the room, she refused to insist on my payment via Visa credit card, she refused to clearly write her name so that I could report her bad behavior. The room I stayed in did not correspond to my reservation instructions through HRS (from the World Bank), it did not have a view of the sea or pool. The mattress was extremely soft, without comfort, which prevented me from sleeping well, I needed a more rigid/orthopedic mattress, as I was at work and it is very important to be able to rest well and wake up without back pain. It was not a pleasant experience at all.

Dear edalmann, We sincerely apologize for the unsatisfactory experience you encountered with our front desk employee. Providing exceptional customer service is our top priority, and we regret that we fell short during your check-in. Rest assured that we will address this issue internally to ensure it does not happen again. Regarding the room discrepancy and the mattress comfort, we understand the importance of a good night's sleep, especially during work trips. We will investigate the room assignment process to prevent such errors in the future. Your feedback is invaluable to us, and we will strive to improve based on your comments. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back and provide you with a much-improved stay. Warm regards Aby Myriam POUYE

Roger B TripAdvisor review

Well, there seems to be no relation to the price you pay versus what you get at this property. It never felt like a particularly good value to me, the rooms are a bit old and there seems to be nothing interesting aside from a small market that is particularly interesting nearby. The photos I see emphasize the food, which seemed acceptable to me, but no more. While I have no specific complaints about this hotel, I can't say that they tried particularly hard to make me want to come back either.
