ggregory2021 Business - 02/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

Disappointing to find that the hotel is no longer well patronised, although this is clearly affected by the COVID pandemic. Nevertheless I would have thought that more effort could be made to keep the hotel looking fresh and inviting. The evening buffet was a favoutite previously, but is no longer offered. In the absence of the buffet the a la carte menu is limited.

The worst hotel experience I ever had

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

Sightseer34361758870 02/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

this hotel doesn’t represent at all any of Sofitel brand hotels or even Accor membership. I was shocked by the changes of my booking to be different than what I’ve booked on the Accor sight with balcony on the Guardian and see view to another one on the second upper Level room with smaller size and I lost the privilege of the Guardian and they claim that it’s the same and no problem is there??!!! After a discussion with them they claimed that they’re sorry that there are no rooms available!!! Then why my book was accepted for a different category and different picture room and lost of guardian and sea combined??!! On the same day we had also a fight with the security due to non-polite attitude and he closed the gates on me and my family and wanted to kick us out of the hotel!!!! After I stepped down and asked for the manager he came and apologized!!!! The service of the food and variety are so poor and bad quality even room service and style is not at all what i’ve experienced in the past with the rest of the hotels in other places. The crew in all stages of this hotel is not professional at all and it’s a big mistake I did that I booked here…. And it’s a big shame on all of Accor hotels brands and especially Sofitel… I’m still there badly due to it’s weekend and I have the family with me. In normal occasions I leave the hotel immediately… This will be the last time I’ll come to this hotel again.

Great location, exceptional customer service.

Noisy rooms- you can hear everything from the corridor to the adjoing rooms. Matterss and bed frame old and unstable. Lounge- had 1 bottle of water, 1 bottle of juice and some cups with muffins- no milk for coffee or tea Main Breakfast - dark crowded and un appealing. We checked out after 1 night stay and went to the Meridian. this is not what a sofitel 5 star looks like that i've seen before

Stay in good hotel but without access to sea it is not good at all And really need to discuss with authorities join able to the hotel to access the ocean in order to be good and nice for families too.
