We stayed here for a week in July 2016, 5 adults. Nice & clean, spacious apartments, helpful & friendly staff. Was 5 minutes in a taxi to all local amenities and maybe 10-15 minute walk to the nearest beach. There's a nice relaxing bar on site along with a mini market for the essentials. There's so much to do in... More

Thanking the comment, we would like to answer the following: to the extent that our buffets are themed, all advertised dishes are cooked in fact each day, which may have happened is on either day have already finished some delicacy, depending on hour.

Very bright and spacious and spotlessly clean accommodation. With air conditioners in all rooms. Very helpful and friendly staff in all areasof the complex.All facilities on site with no need to leave if so desired. Reasonably priced food and drink or very cheap compared to home.
