Spotless and extremely clean, great housekeeping, which actually spans throughout... More

Was there just this week and was fortunate enough to stay in one of the newly renovated rooms near the spa. They're really beautiful, tastefully decorated, spacious, spic and span. Really fast WiFi too! Food's great. They change it up every day so it never gets boring. If you like quiet holidays like I do book a room near the... More

My family and I were there just last week and we loved it! It really is a very beautiful, well-laid out resort that stretches over quite a large piece of prime land. plenty of quiet places to hide out and relax if you're into laid back holidays. The food was amazing and they keep it interesting by having several different... More

It' a nice hotel but nothing to shout about. The food is slighly above average but I got bored after 2 days. We got a good rate so I wouldn't complaint. The hotel staff on the other hand were great, very attentive and helpful. Would recommend it for a good rate.

There is nothing else I and my family could have asked for. Absolutely fantastic. I wish I had known about this place when I was still in London. The trip from Wellington New Zealand was very very long, but the experience, comfort, luxury, food, security, and most importantly customer service is first class. Highly recommend, and I will surely be... More

While attending a conference, I stayed at the hotel for a few days in early December 2014. The hotel itself is great- beautiful grounds, nice pools, great food, good conference facilities, and a nice gym. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms however, are in desperate need of an upgrade. Some, anyway. The rooms by the spa seem... More

What a beautiful hotel, staff all so friendly and the views were breathtaking, plenty to do on site but was a beautiful place to relax, the infinity pool was out of this world. Everywhere was clean and tidy, rooms were airy and clean and good sizes. Right on the beach and as long as you don't mind being chased by... More
