This is certainly not a 5* hotel as they advertise. It is no better than any other 3* I have been too. The staff are for the main, appalling. They want bribing/tipping upfront in order to do the job they are employed. They (again not all but in the main) were very sleazy, rude and did not want to do... More

Well this hotel is really good from the points of location and design. I liked the spaces the garden and beach. The hotel though it is full but in the open areas you don't feel that because it is so big which is an advantage. They have a big pool and good beach and many areas for activities. The room... More

Unfortunately there was only one thing why we were very disappointed and that was the staff at the reception: we had 3... More

We were really shocked about the wifi access . You would not have internet in your rooms and wifi provided... More

Take your own chili sauce if you don't like bland food. The Chinese restaurant is doesn't serve authentic food, apart from the veg spring rolls. There is evening entertainment, but... More
