Overall the hotel has a very beautiful location and large rooms with clean linen but the service for cleaning was not optimum . The breakfast was with appropriate amont of food variety. The staff was kind and helpful in the front desk but their number was not enough to face visitors’ number crisis.

The hotel has nice facilities. The pool and beach are great. I was here for 10 days on business but I wish I had stayed somewhere else. The food (I initially ate all of my meals at the hotel) was really poor. There are virtually no vegetarian options in the buffet (I asked a couple of times to which I was pointed towards rice and mashed potato as a sufficient vegetarian meal?). I had to, therefore, eat fish and meat just so I didn't go hungry. The food was very bad in terms of quality and the ingredients were not fresh. After a few days, I just ordered Deliveroo because I couldn't bring myself to eat at the hotel anymore. The gym is really good but I was told off by the personal trainer at the gym for dropping the weights despite the floor being designed for this exact purpose and if I carefully placed heavy weights on the floor I would be more likely to injure myself so that was a bit weird. He then disappeared and was nowhere to be seen despite a number of guests using bad form who could've benefited from his advice. I think he was napping which would explain why he didn't like the weights being dropped. I also had a kitchen in my room but the cupboards were empty - no cutlery or utensils to cook. All in all, it is a bit of a weird hotel. I had to negotiate to have an apple juice at lunch - the server refused to provide any juice and said it was for breakfast only. How weird - I am a paying guest and asking for a glass of apple juice. He finally obliged after confirming with his manager that guests are indeed permitted to order drinks... There's not much life or laughter here (and no alcohol). This is the perfect place to visit if you don't have taste buds and just want to lie by the pool/beach all day then have a 12 hour sleep.
