We have just returned from a weeks holiday end of April 2015.
We arrived early evening and the first impressions were great, entering a superb spacious lobby, the decor was very grand.
Up early the next morning and on the beach at 8am only to find NOT one sun bed with an umbrella was available. But hey, the beach boys who serve the towels suddenly found us one right on the front row that already looked occupied. For a small fee it was ours and I suddenly realised they have a good scam going Very wrong and not what I expect at a 5 star.
The evening entertainment was a complete joke, non existant.
To sum it all up,
THE GOOD. Cold beer, lovely beach, superb weather and Asian restaurant.
THE BAD. Awful local spirits.
THE UGLY. Rubbish evening entertainment. A bunn fight for a sun bed. Hard beds in the room.
Have stayed in much better.
