The hotel is just ok, but far from luxurious, although it has a lovely beach. Around the resort there are plastic chairs and tables that are usually left sticky from previous night until late am or even lunch time; rooms are ok but need updating, with leaking showers or stained sofas; our room was one bedroom garden view which had a view but not of the garden just staff accommodation.
Food is really average and the waterside restaurant needs serious refurbishment as the chairs, the wooden veranda are falling apart. Food there is simply awful. The beach loungers are on their last legs and people seem to be leaving their towels really early to reserve those that are ok to use.
Staff are friendly though and kids love this resort due to talking, friendly parrots, separate pool for kids with large slide and special buffet for children. As for adults - this resort was not really for us (although our 8 year old daughter loved it)....it just needed a little more love and attention and really it should not be rated as a four star resort. Yes, there is plenty to drink and eat as this is all inclusive resort but looking at some men with big bellies drinking beer in plastic cups in the sea at 10am until they cannot stand up anymore is not our idea of relaxing on the beach. The entertainment at night was attracting the same sort of drunken crowds with karaoke, talent shows etc. It is far from luxurious.
You cab however use free water skiing and other sports activities. Despite the few perks I would not go back to this resort. To be very frank the resort is a little shoddy.
