Food is horrible. We actually preferred street food for dinner. Nothing was tasty. We were half board and couldn't get even water for our meal and had to pay for mineral water. The first night we had to lodge across the street. The room was stinking from mold. We were compensated with a 30 min. Double back massage which was... More

All inclusive but the main reception and bar areas overlooking the ocean are for paying customers only. This is pristine and cleaned daily by an army of... More

Stayed here for 11 days in July. The Hotel was nice but not much character, especially the receptionist! (One of the most miserable ladies I've ever spoken to) but having just had a refurb it's pleasant enough, the rooms are really nice and it's really clean. The internet is pretty poor and the satellite TV is great if your French!... More

This hotel is set in the most beautiful location and has the potential to be excellent, but all let down by the food. FREEZING cold is not an exaggeration when it comes to all dishes of food. Hotel Manager does not seem to care. Holiday was ruined by poor service by staff and we eventually sorted out our issue more... More

We recently stayed at this hotel after booking with an agent. Sadly the agent got our booking wrong and booked only two people not three into this hotel. The hotel after three days moved us into the main hotel from a sister annex located across off site. So this wasn't a great start but no fault of the hotel. The... More
