The outdoor pool was described as rather small, as guests found it inadequate for swimming, referring to it as a dipping pool. Due to its size, the pool as well as the surrounding pool area was said to be often crowded which made some guests reluctant to use it.
Inadequate insulation and soundproofing meant that guests were able to hear noise from the adjoining rooms as well as those above them. Some also objected to the noisy plumbing which could be heard when other occupants used the bathroom.
Rooms on the small side.
Some of the rooms have been described as quite small, as guests said that they felt rather disappointed upon seeing the size of their suites. Many commented on feeling cramped and not having enough space to stow away their belongings.
