Some annoyances that could be fixed by management – several times I had to wait a long time for the water to get hot for a shower, the internet access went off/on, and some of the staff were surly (some were quite helpful). Nice setting but in a remote area with not much around and a 12 euro taxi ride...

The rooms are very clean, most essential aspect. Staff extremely polite and helpful. Needless to mention the exquisite view from some rooms and excellent location only 2'walk from the beach. All inclusive is not exactly as other hotels offer it, but still food is excellent, and with adequate variety.

The location is very close to a sandy beach which is not deep, The resort has a nice swimming pool with a very good pool bar. There are free faciliries for children and there is a small kindergarden where kids are kept without parents attention nit required. Rooms could be bigger. Food was OK - room for improvement there.

This resort is overly busy, crowded and noisy. The restaurant food is all right, but the many adult guests showed poor manners or lacked basic queuing skills. This meant that parents did not ask their children not to run around in the restaurant and make a lot of noise. We'd carefully picked out the resort based on very good reviews...

We are a family with 2 children 4-5 yrs old . The hotel room was a single space with bunk beds. Big closet and space next to nightstands allowed for hiding the 2 luggage, so the room felt comfortable. The big (approx. 4m x 3m) balcony was great with views to the gulf.
