Myself, my mother and my teenage brother stayed here for two weeks. We shared a junior suite which was lovely, it was very clean and bright, and was thankfully well air-conditioned and had a spacious en suite and balcony. We enjoyed the all inclusive offer offered by the hotel, and found that despite some drinks being excluded from this deal,... More

We have just returned from 11 days here, overall we had a lovely holiday but there were quite a few disappointing things about the hotel. The first room they put us in had a dirty carpet, curtains hanging off the rails and was tiny. When I complained twice they moved us, and the second room was much better, however it... More

No real issues with the hotel as such, staff very good, hotel very clean, and buffet food is better than most all inclusive I've been to.
