We stayed here with our 3 children in Jul 2016 and would highly recommend it. Our villa had 2 bedrooms and was excellently equipped. The only drawback was the a/c wasn't working in the living room (although to be fair we didn't bring it to the receptions attention) but was fine in the two bedrooms. Also the main bedroom had...

Beautiful villas, very clean and spacious cleaned regularly. Fully equipped kitchen. Pool area fab no shortage of sun beds. Would recommend a car as a good 40 minute walk into old town. Beach across the road a good ten minutes walk.

First visit having passed many times. We had a Cheeseburger and chips and a Tuna Salad with chips. Table was dirty and the waitress made no attempt to wipe prior to putting 2 unclean table mats down on the table. Service is slow due to only 2 staff ! The chips were not cooked properly and were soggy ! The... More

We had a week in the resort early May and was very pleased. Although the villas are a little dated and in need of some refurbishment it was really good. The staff were very friendly and always helpful. I would recommend this resort.

We did not expect a lot of this pleasant resort in March so we were not surprised! The restaurant Seaons offered good food and the daily fixed dinner menu offered excellent value. However, surely a change in starter, even a different soup, would not have taxed rhe kitchen? Nearby dining opportunities were also limited although the local Chinese restaurant offered... More

Stayed here for a few days in January so didn't expect all the facilities to be available. Pleasantly surprised by this very nice resort, all the staff were polite, friendly and helpful, the 'villa' (townhouse) was much bigger than we were expecting, clean and comfortable. The only downside was despite what the website says, the restaurant is closed on a... More

This is our second visit to the resort and the high standards have been upheld from my last visit. This time we stayed in a higher numbered villa and the view is much better down to the ocean there, I think it is also slightly larger, not that space is a problem anyway.

Booked two villas for Dec5.-12th. Arrived Saturday late in the afternoon just to hear that the restaurant was closed and no breakfast or anything was available. The restaurant was closed for one month - for renovation. But looking through the door glas there was nothing in progress, so it must just have been an excuse for laying off staff. Re-opening...
