Food was very bad, it is not worth for the money we paid. Also most of the place was under construction. Only good thing is that we can enjoy is the beach. My suggestion is this is not the good place for business trip.

Spending two nights here, rooms are spacious semi-detached cottages alongside the enormous swimming pool but rather strangely they face away from the pool rather than towards it. Air conditioning was of industrial strength. Pool itself is very clean. Grounds run down to the sea with a private beach. Food in the restaurant was of a high standard.
