This hotel for my family (we traveled with a 6&9 years old) was almost perfect. First of all the transportation from the airport was great, they used the small minibus, so it was almost like private transfer, didn't have to stop at any hotel to drop off other people. The hotel grounds are beautiful, newer, spotless, always enough chairs around the 5 pools. Our room was also very clean, room service took about 1 hour to get the food, and by the time it came already was cold. The food at the restaurant were excellent for our liking, I loved that everything made for order, after this hotel I never wanna go back to a "buffet style vacation" again. The variety was great, even smoked salmon for breakfast, duck tacos for lunch. The service by the beach and the pool was great, they came every 10-15 minutes to check on us if we need anything.
Now, what we didn't like was the beach, it was full of seaweed, they raked the sand every morning but for some reason left the seaweed there, so it was basically never cleaned up. If we decide to go back we will take water shoes with us, there were lots of small sharp rocks it was painful to get into the water. We also like the long walks along the beach, but here we couldn't do it because it was the only hotel at this area and the beach was only clean and walkable between the hotel property lines. Left side there was a car ferry, right side they start to build soon 2 hotels, and I think it is going to be awfully noisy for the next 2 years. So everything comes down what someones preference is, for us huge positive was the cleanliness, the beauty of the hotel and the food, but the beach can be a deal breaker.
