We spent two weeks here on a special deal from a German tour operator. We were picked up from the airport which worked very well and brought to the hotel, which is set on a well-maintained compound with 3 nice pools.
We had booked a 'superior' room which had ocean view and a huge bed; the only thing that took away from that view was the ugly 'lagoon' before it (see picture). The complimentary water bottles and the coffee and tea in the room were a nice touch.
The rooms were nice, airconditioned, and the TV had lots of international channels; however, at times, they could have been more thorougly cleaned (under the bed, for instance).
Breakfast was O.K., the selection was alright but didn't change at all in the two weeks we were there, which made it boring after a while. The quality of the fruit was not great, unfortunately.
Overall, we were satisfied with the hotel; In our opinion, with a few small changes, this hotel could receive a better star rating than it has at the moment.
