We had a great time on the bike tour with Aris, and whenever we needed anything he either had it or got it quickly. Jonathin was a bundle of energy from start to finish and... More

This place is just terrible. The food is awful, the bars close early, the alcohol is watered down, the staff AND other guests were rude as can be. It doesn't say so on the website, but you can only eat at restaurants other than the terribly disgusting buffet two times during your stay. The buffet and bars aren't always open... More

The food was excellent and all the waiters/bartenders were only too pleased to be of service to us and worked extremely hard. I mentioned the food to the Head Chef who was equally pleased that I had mentioned it.... More

Had a great time, place was fantastic. Can't wait to return. If you love to walk on the beach, this is the place to go, you can walk and walk, and walk, need I say more. The choice of food was not lacking, something for everyone and it was all good.

We spent 4 nights, 5 days in this beautiful oasis back in 2005. Everything about this place was fantastic. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Our suite was over 2 floors. Downstairs, you had the open bedroom that had a terrace off of it. The spiral staircase in the corner led upstairs to the bathroom (spacious, with a tub... More
