A very comfortable place to stay with especially with family and kids. I love their pool for the kids as well as for the adults with a bar on the side of pool. Would love to return to this hotel again.

I spent the day at the beach/pool and not a single person came to ask if i needed anything. The pool really is big and very enjoyable, but the beach is not that great.
