I was there with my girlfriend on July 2012. The location is really nice, north east coast is better than the west with white sand and large difference on water level during tide. The hotel is not bad but probably I was expecting something better from the price I paid and from the pictures I saw, (especially for the rooms where you could smell the humid). Everything there was looked a bit old, the furniture the decoration the sport equipment etc. Moreover the stuff was not well trained we had to try a lot in order to give them to understand what we were need. On the other hand I have to add that the personnel was very polite and smiling all day trying their best. The Italian manager also try to satisfy as because he saw that we were a bit disappointed from the hotel. The place was full of families and programes for kids etc for us most of them were without meaning but for a family it could be nice. Food also in all inclusive was plenty but without any fantasy or variation, after few days you were bored. Averall hotel was not bad. Nice location good facilities and happy people. If you are a fsmily with kids do not expect too much or you can find a good all inclusive price (maybe from Italy) then you will really enjoy it. Finally remember that everything from the hotel (tours) will be very expensive. Bargain a lot or find alternatives.
