We orginally booked the Sandies next door but as it is low season we were re-booked (free of charge) to the DOA.
We personnaly enjoy the quite but were afraid it would be too quite... We'll it was surely quite but we enjoyed every second of it. I would defintely recommend this hotel and certainly in low season. Still 36°C, enough sun and burning so the clouds were very welcome otherwise we would have spent each day in the pool... At many times, we felt like we were alone in the hotel, the most crowded was the weekend with 14(!) guests for dinner ;)
The staff is amazing, so friendly, helpful, always smiling. From the reception, to the bar, restaurant and pool, all great people.
Food is good, varied and the pool bar snack menu is a good alternative (chessburger & sandwiches).
Cocktails (all in) are great, getting stronger by the hour ;)
Pool is the right size, we are not beach people but the view is amazing. Lots of palm trees (which I love) and beach boys leave you alone after the first day (unless you're walking on the beach).
All in all, very quite and relaxing holiday and certainly the best hotel even though we like some entertainment. Oh and the Spa is also great, very good massages for reasonable prices (compared to Belgium)
