My partner felt perfectly safe at this resort even going to local supermarket on her own. Supermarket has everything you need just about 500mts... More

We upgraded from saver room and it was terrible so they changed us to a better room with a great view but as with the previous room the air con... More

I had booked a Supersaver room however, I found it to small for 2 people and upgraded to a standard room. which was quite basic the room was bigger facing the sea. The food in the hotel was great they catered for all diets.... More

fantastic week here with friends, the rooms do need updating or modernizing would be more to the point! However for somewhere to shower and sleep it did the job. Food was better than expected in the main buffet restaurant, the seafood restaurant was just the same as the buffet food just served on a plate lots of mosquitoes there too... More
