Our stay here was the middle leg of our honeymoon trip. Overall, we were pleased with the hotel and service. Upon arriving at 4 pm our room was not ready because they had accomodated a late checkout to the person before us so to appease us they gave us a balinese bed for either that day or another day. Of course, I chose the next day so we can use it for the whole day. Its value was 100 Euros. We had a deluxe room on the 6th floor with a beautiful view and it was clean. Some parts of the hotel did look like they need updating such as the brass in the lobby and elevator doors. The red level service included access to a lounge that had drinks and snacks from 11-9 as well as a concierge desk. Although the concierge desk was friendly, they did not offer any information about things to do in the area or restaurants to go to. All information had to be pulled out of them. They did not give us brochures for excursions either. We ended up just relaxing by the pool each day. The pool was nice but it fills up by ten each morning. I found this rather annoying that on our honeymoon we had to wake early and rush to breakfast to get by the pool to secure a chair. Additionally, there were a lot more children at the resort than I had envisioned and some were not well behaved. The buffet breakfast was nice as was the Latin Theme night (dinner and music). Our favorite part of the hotel was the Cappuccino restaurant down by the beach. We enjoyed the music and service there. The menu has something you can order for any time of day but the prices are inconsistent. We had a ridiculously priced tuna roll one night but at least it was yummy. We shared a roast chicken ciabatta one afternoon which was inexpensive and huge! The wifi seemed to be an issue as well, we were constantly getting kicked out and it was very slow. While the overall hotel was a good experience, it is still not what we had expected for our honeymoon. Lastly, the red level concierge knew we were on our honeymoon (from both our travel agent and from us) and nothing special was done for us. They said they would send us champagne and strawberries on our last night there but it never happened.
