Amazing place. Cool excursions. But the hotel is dated. Was expecting a lot more from a riu. The surronding areas unfortunately ate unfinshed hotels. Ridicously hot and so easy to burn. The sea is soo much fun with metal waves. Will not visit again

My wife and I stayed 7th.-14th. January 2015. We enjoyed our holiday immensely. Comfortable, well equipped room, very good food, good atmosphere, beautiful beach right outside, prompt, slick service everywhere. If we had paid twice as much I do not think we could justifiably complain about anything. On top of all that the weather was perfect for sunbathing when we... More
