My girlfriend and i stayed here for a week in late October. You can certainly tell it is a 5* hotel instantly upon entering the hotel lobby. The rooms were cleaned everyday and the bar/restaurant staff were very helpful at all times and gave you anything you needed. However, they did not do late night snacks which we assumed was the norm in many hotels.
The location is fantastic; near many local tourist attractions, by the beach and very close by to super markets. The outdoor pool is very clean and well kept and the pool bar is brilliant, along with the service. The indoor pool isn't upto much, which may explain why it was always empty.
My only major complaint with this hotel would be the lack of entertainment provided by the animation team. We we're entertained on only one night of the seven we spent in this hotel. This led to a lot of people going to bed early and a very quiet bar area every evening after around 10. If you're looking for a quiet place to enjoy good service with beautiful local beer then this is exactly where you should be.
I would definitely reccommend this hotel to anyone and i wouldn't hesitate in going back.
