We stayed here for week in a friend's time share apartment and didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. Our suite was large for two people, but would have been cosy for four, two of whom would have slept on the sofa bed in the sitting room. There was a small but well equipped kitchen which could have catered for our entire stay if we wished - but we didn't. Bathroom and bedroom were spacious and very clean/well maintained. A balcony with table and chairs overlooked one of the three swimming pools.
The hotel itself was smart, 4 star rather than 5 star, and well maintained. We didn't stay in much and never ate in the restaurants which we thought expensive compared with outside.
There are flowers everywhere and the gardeners deserve congratulation; it was rather like living in a botanical garden.
One thing I would say is that my wife and I are in our early sixties - and we felt very young in this hotel. Certainly in early May it is very very quiet and you need to make your own entertainment outside the hotel - and that is exactly what we did. Conversely if you prefer to stay quietly in beautiful surroundings and relax, this is for you.
