Did not start well. Std check-in time was 11am, received the room finally at 1pm. Was not very convinced with their alternatives which included "you plz have ur breakfast (paid one on the 1st day)" or "have a walk to the sea" or "roam around the property (huge one)" etc.
But once we settled in our room everything fell in place. Room was luxurious and was properly cleaned and decorated. Kitchen was full with refrigerated water, drinks and other amenities. Balcony was really good. The tea m/c was very helpful throughout our stay and the stock never finished.
The small pool beside the Olegario's restaurant was very nice. The bigger pool was more spacious and the swim-in bar was amazing. The gardens inside the hotel were well maintained and the sun-beds were always available. Some photos are added for traveler's benefit. Never felt better in any other hotel.
The shack just outside the resort, Calamari was as superb and the karaoke there was extraordinary. The in-house restaurant was also very good but with limited options. Complimentary breakfast was full of choices and some small modifications in the menu was immediately accommodated by the staff.
Was really impressed by the restaurant and cleaning staff. They were always cheerful and smiling. Wish to see the reception staffs more cheerful and helpful.
