My stay was perfect.Very disappointed I didn’t get to swim because it was closed early.But the staff was kind,my privacy was respected and house keeping didn’t wake me up.When I had a request they catered to me quickly.The elevators that use key cards are perfect!

A wonderful stay with comfortable clean rooms, excellent service and a delicious breakfast in a centrally located close to the promenade with wonderful views of the sea and restaurants. What more can a person ask for?? The extra special treat for my birthday was such a wonderful gesture and greatly appreciated.

The stay was great and the staff were friendly. Great room service but Menu options after curfew can be better. Weather was not too good to swim. No sea facing rooms were available for the weekend but hope next time

My friend and I had a superb experience at the President. Value for money was the main thing - we both felt extremely well taken care of and had such a range of things to do. The spa was incredible - the therapist was so kind and caring and a good listener. The pool area was gorgeous (such a pity it wasn't heated as it was freezing!), and the fitness centre was the perfect place to start my morning. The staff are all so accommodating and friendly. Will definitely be coming back again for a "stay-cation"!

as long as you pay with a credit card you will be covered, but maybe not through an email, go direct to the website to pay, never click a link in an email if you are even slightly unsure.

It's best to check with the hotel prior as not all hotel's offer day room stays. I'm sure it would still be a private room though.
