I have stayed in this hotel several times. The hotel itself is probably 4 stars, but I give it 5 because of the location, good breakfast and nice pool. The only thing you beaware is not to take room with mountain view which in real life means view to the airport with airport noise. Always sea view.

Stayed here a night and loved my room. Got a twin bed mountain view room. As a gold member, I asked about an upgrade and the lady that checked me in smiled and said, "Upgrade to the sixth floor." So it was still a twin room with a mountain view but on the club floor which didn't have any special... More

I stayed here because it was close to the airport and I had an early flight. I was so pleasantly surprised that this was a great resort. Spacious well appointed rooms and terrific pool and grounds. I was by myself but great facilities for kids. The beach is close and the lobby area with bar is very nice.

I would avoid this resort at all cost. The service was not good, if you get a room on the back side of the Hotel you will face the airport and see and hear the planes landing and take off (of course if that is what you like then this Hotel might be perfect for you) If you want to... More
