We stayed here for 7 nights during high-season. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms and interior of the hotel are comfortable. Also the breakfast was very rich and the room service dining options were tasty and of good quality. The beach was also nice, water is shallow and warm and the hotel arranges water sports. The hotel also offers hair salon services which were quite good. The pool is shallow (1.35 m) which is safer for children.
However...the hotel is a far cry from being 5-star. The level of luxury does not even come close to that of other 5 or even 4 stars hotels elsewhere. The interior and especially the exterior are not well kept and are in need of restoration. The pool is one of the smallest I have encountered at beach side hotels and when crowded there is no way you can enjoy it.
My biggest issue about this hotel was cleanness. Even though the corridors were constantly occupied by the cleaning staff, our room would often not be ready before 3 pm. Also, the room was never adequately cleaned (dirty glasses, strange smell) and the elevators and corridors leading to the pool area were never quite clean-despite the staff's best efforts. Also, there is no free WiFi anywhere in the hotel.
It is worth the stay if you can get a good deal on it.
