I was there for a conference last October. The rooms were very nicely themed, the music options were fantastic also. The pool area was very nice, the gym was great with nice views over the pool. The kids area looked like a lot of fun (my wife and kids were not there unfortunately). The pool was right near the beach.... More

I stayed there 4D/3N for my Birthday trip. Lagoon Deluxe is the perfect room, food is good, and friendly staffs. I even got a surprise Birthday cake delivered to my room. Small gesture that means a lot. What a sweet thought. Thank you Hard Rock ;)

Stayed here 2 nights during the fasting month. The room was comfy but face the hill and without balcony to dry wet swim wears. So, if you plan to stay here, make sure to book sea-view, which rooms all have a balcony and a much better view. Other than that, the staff are well trained and provide standard service. The... More

Room was spacious and well equipped with good bathroom with walk in shower. Free films on demand and good views over the pool and... More

The reason we choosed this hotel was because of its children pool, and we were not dissapointed. Our kids swam and played in the pool for almost 5 hours, as it has slides, water shooters, lazy river, etc. And for older kids there are also water sports available with extra fees, such as jet skis, parachutes, banana boat etc. We...

Unbelievable. What a fantastic place. View of the pools from the spotlessly kept room. Everything about the place is top class. The staff are incredibly helpful and always do everything with a smile on their face. Great choice of food to eat for all ages. Our family ranged in age from four years old to seventy four years old and... More
