This is an all inclusive hotel with food and drink available almost all day. There are shows and discos in the evening. The staff are attentive and helpful, calling guests by name and remembering choices. The rooms are fairly basic but comfortable and the reason why this hotel is not 5*.

Love coming here!! It's been a favourite family haunt for years due to the high level of care that goes into the hotel and its guests. There's always something going on for everyone who's interested. It's a great place for families with younger kids and with teenagers. Amazing beaches and sports centre!

Went there for our honeymoon. The rooms are very basic and the bathrooms not in good condition. The food is good though. This place is more for family and not really for honeymooners as it lacks privacy and too much noise. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would not recommend it to honeymoon couples. You can get better options... More

We had a unit looking out on the ocean which was super clean and up-to-date. The adult pool was a step away and was great for refreshing swims. The buffet style meals were perfect and each chef was friendly and helpful. The staff were always welcoming and happy to see us! Thanks to Masha and Peter who brought drinks to... More
