Visited during Easter weekend which was very crowded. Would not go during Easter again. This was also preceding the day the entire resort closed for major renovations. Overall friendly staff, decent food-not great, and gorgeous beach. This resort was a mid range resort so it lacked many amenities but I knew this when I booked. Overall good stay and would...

The room was fairly good as expected. The pool, swim up bar, children's pool, and beach were excellent. Close to each other. Plenty of chairs by poolside or at the beach. The entertainment crew was excellent, very energetic and kept us busy and entertained. The quality of food and drinks was a little lower. Most drinks were locally made. Mostly...

BEACH: Gorgeous! Beautiful blue and turquoise waters on gorgeous long stretch of beach where you can walk for miles in either direction. No rocks. Little seaweed. Gets windy so there are waves which can be fun if you bring tubes for your kids! There are tons of palm trees all around the beach and hotel grounds of this resort which...

We arrived for a four night vacation with family for an all inclusive experience. Room never got cleaned. Tips taken. Safes didn't work. My sons bag with electronics got stolen from the lobby. The restaurants were only open 1 night because the hotel is closing for 3 months for renovations. Thanks for Apple letting us know. Bar staff was great....

What happens if I've left something in the room at the end of my stay? Is there a protocol for that? We were there in room 2711 from Tuesday April 11-16. A teddy ear was left in room. I know it has been found by a staff member. Hoping a manager sees this and responds.

Stayed for 10 nights, more 3/4 star not 5 star. Nice pool and bar, great beach with loungers and palm trees for shade. Main restaurant is ok but a bit "works canteen" in its ambiance, Chinese restaurant is much better but was only open a couple of times whilst we were there. The "steak restaurant" was never open for dinner...

I loved this hotel! I maybe easy to please but really can't see what people's issues are!? If you wanted ultra modern or extremely posh up your budget and go next door (either direction) Ok it's ready for a lick of paint but does this really effect your holiday? Bonus is its now closed getting the paint job along with...
