We stayed here with our 12 & 9 year old children and had a lovely time! We had a great one bedroom suite which had an extra terrace as it was an end room. The kids had separate beds in the living area which saved their grumble over having to share a bed. Generally the food was good, enough choice... More

So the wife booked this one having read the reviews earlier in the year. We arrived a little after lunchtime and it was hot, the reception staff were friendly, but a cold drink waiting for us (like we have at other 5* hotels we go to) would have been a nice touch. I was instantly annoyed by the reception who... More

The good: great suite with two bedrooms, two baths; great Elvis impersonator/entertainer one night (every Sunday, I believe); friendly guests; decent amount of lounge chairs and two nice pools; decent game room; helpful staff The not-so-good: No map of the grounds. Even though it is a compact property, a map of the grounds would have been helpful. The beach is... More

Had a nice relaxing stay here but was disappointed with the location of the hotel. It doesn't overlook the beach, unless you are on the 3rd floor and can see the beach which is a 10 minute walk away. The rooms are lovely and spacious and the beds were made daily. Food was always fresh and plentiful and very nice.... More
