As a couple of teachers, my girlfriend and I chose this place due to the "no child" rule. Perfect! every hotel should have this rule as it was very peaceful and we didn't see any kids/families unless we chose to go to the other side of the complex. Positives: the room was very spacious, the bed was big and comfortable,... More

Overall - this hotel may be a 4 star but certainly not a five. Transfer to the hotel was good. The good parts were the fact that it is adults only, the sun was excellent, the water was good, the staff was good.

My husband and I got married 5/7/11 (almost one year!) and went here for our honeymoon. It was so reasonably priced, and the room was standard but GORGEOUS.

I will not go into great detail since others have covered most of the highlights. Our first experience at all adult resort and loved it. The odd boiterous group sometimes spoiled the peace and quiet but not too bad. Great to have the best of both worlds - we tried all of the a la cartes on the all ages... More
