If you are looking for a Hotel in an up-market resort with plenty of night life, this is not the place for you! If you are looking for a hotel that provides a relaxing holiday with good food, attentive staff and good facilities then I can recommend this hotel.
The hotel is close to the airport and the planes flew passed the hotel several times a day but were never a nuisance.
We were all inclusive and were happy with nearly every aspect of the holiday. Food varied and of a good quality, good standard of cleanliness and a reasonable number of drinks, snacks, icecream that were included. The staff were polite and helpful and served everybody in turn. A special thank to Sandra (?) who seemed to be everywhere and always had a smile on her face.
The only downsides were:
1) I felt that the transfer from the airport could be free to A/I guests;
2) The indoor pool complex should be available free to A/I guests on at least 1 day of a week's stay.
Overall I would rate this hotel highly and will certainly come back again.
