We arrived here after a safari in Kenya. As we had experienced in Kenya the staff were most welcoming, even though it was 10p.m. The staff couldn't have been more attentive. My 22 year old daughter is quite a fussy eater, and on our first dinner there she couldn't find anything she liked so the restaurant manager [sorry I never... More

On recommendation of our travel agent, we booked and spend 5 nights at this resort on half-board. Two parents and two kids. Hotel had confirmed connecting rooms at the time of booking, and this was honoured. We arrived late and the dinner serving had closed. The hotel volunteered delivery of sandwiches to our room. Much appreciated after a long travel... More

Stayed here for 5 nights and were a bit apprehensive when we were told we were in room 101. Actually I think it was the best one! As it was an individual thatched cottage, closest to the beach, swimming pool and restaurant. The beach was about 40ft from our little veranda area, with amazing views. Although there was musical entertainment... More

I intended to write a good review about this perfect hotel, because it really is a perfect hotel, with a beautiful landscape and great staff.
