We stayed in a sea view villa and this was really comfortable and kept clean by the room boys twice a day. in the evening they come to turn down the bed, spray the room for bugs (didn't see a single bug, mosquito or insect in...

Currently we are working on another home in our... More

I have just come back from a 10 night stay and I have no complaints at all! I do find it quite strange that a lot of people feel it necessary to complain that the 'All inclusive' doesn't include wine! or that it may be nice to choose off an 'A La Carte Menu'! We travelled as a party of... More

Enjoyed our stay here, fantastic air conditioning which was much appreciated. We were in the bungalows, away from the larger hotel complex, which gave us more peace and quiet which suited us well after a long haul flight through the night!

First the good bits - This hotel is centrally located, which is good for trips to explore other parts of the island, although be warned you will still have an early start!
