4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

From the moment of our arrival, we received cold towels and a delicious drink. The rooms were spacious and very clean, the staff was accommodating, and most of the food was good. The entertainment team was also very good. Every night they had a different show. We became friends with some of them, which made our vacation even more enjoyable.... More

We had a wonderful 7 day stay at the resort. I did notice an improvement in the food in the buffet from my last visit. The bacon every second day at breakfast was a nice treat. We did request a king sized bed and ended up with two doubles, but we adapted. The night management staff needs to be better... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days on a family vacation. There were a lot of positives that initially drew us in - the proximity to the beach, the affordability relative to other resorts in the area, and the beauty of the place itself. However, there were a lot of issues that came up that we really didn't... More

This resort like all have it's ups and downs. I'll start with the pros: the size of the resort is great!

The entertainment was by far the best addition to our vacation! I made great friends,i.e. Coco, Ms. Shorty, "Will Smith", Carlos and more. The beach activities included horseshoes, aerobics, and beach... More

Just returned and I would HIGHLY recommend this place. Great Staff, Great Food, and most important is how clean everything was. Only one minimal and I mean minimal issue is that the Entertainment could be a little more. Shout out to Elvin who worked at the beach bar( Awesome Job and made such a great impression)

We spent a lovely 2 weeks here, our room was in the quiet area which had a pool and bar. The room was comfortable but looked rather tired, in need of a freshen up and a coat of paint. Having said that we spent very little time in the room. The resort was lovely, we prefer the beach to swimming... More

We had a great experience via Thomson/SkyTours. The resort is in the great location, lovely beaches, nice big rooms. Not much difference but the rooms located near the beach have been modernised and those near the tennis courts are less so but still nice for the value. Beaches are lovely, not overcrowded, and lovely walks up to the Peninsula. The... More
