I stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks and fully enjoyed my stay. The hotel is a nice property, though it needs improvement in terms of service and food quality. The rooms are nice as far as size is concerned but housekeeping needs complete overhaul. The hotel is perhaps understaffed and staff not trained enough. Soap and shampoo will not... More

There was a lovely selection of foods which are all cooked very well, sometimes if you don't get there early there isn't any food but the chiefs reassured us that food will come and it did... More

We stayed for 5 days on a family holidays. Its a ideally located, beautiful property, but lacks the basic maintenance and quality service. The good part first, the rooms are huge and well designed, and the resort property itself is very nice.

Great views from the room and great Mojitos. You might need to phone the receptions for everything you need and sometime take a long walk to it to get whatever you need yourself. The staff is friendly (or maybe it is because i can speak French fluently)...the food can be great depending on what you chose to eat, expensive shops!... More
