Great place to relax, a wide selection of food and beverages, and good evening entertainment. The staff are very friendly and approachable. Lovely setting, plenty of space to chill out both inside or outside, with easy reach of the beach/sea, and every where is very clean.

Excellent value for money. The staff are helpful and very friendly. All Inclusive meals and drinks are very good for the price paid. Wifi only on first floor and reception/lounge area although there are signs saying that they are in the progress of putting it throughout the hotel. The rooms are adequate and cleaned daily the only downside for me...
