Loved the lobby and the cascading water to the basement bar. Room spacious with chaise lonque to watch tv from. The bathroom divided into 3 areas separated by frosted glass was a welcome bonus. Large vanity unit with 2 sinks was great and having desk etc in the room as well was icing on the cake. Thanks for the birthday... More

3 days of good food, sun and relaxation. The buffet breakfast was a regular hotel buffet with eggs being made your preferred way in front of you with a wide variety. The restaurants were excellent which include the marco Pierre White steak restaurant...lovely. The beach was a really nice place to be...with great waiter service for drinks and snacks!

Wonderful experience, perfect getaway for couples. The bed was amazing and the room nicely furnished. I would definitely recommend it. The gym is fantastic for a hotel and the resort staff are very polite.

We stayed here for Three weeks, from the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. First impressions are of a very contemporary hotel with a very spacious foyer, a little cold you may have thought but the receptionist Chanchal soon put that thought out of your head, warm, efficient and very personable, we were quickly processed and on our...

He welcomes us back each time by remembering our names and also welcomes other happy guests with the most amazing service and care. The hotel has everything you need, whether you are... More
