The service is slow and bad. The beach is not interesting at all with no activities and far away from rooms. The spa center is super clean and has a good staff & service. Overall I found my stay was a little bit boring than i expected.

We arrived at morning before checking, but the staff was very nice,because we could take our room earlier. The room was clear and the food was also good. If anybody has a problem please find the service manager (mr. Amgar) he is a nice person and he could manage all kind of problem.

A super hotel where they do everything to make you feel relax. A high quality hotel, clean with good beach. After being at the beach, I always drink something at the beautiful launch area where you hear soft music. People very kind and service minded. A perfect place to escape from a heavy job and enjoy the sun.

Next bungalow is so far away that it does not interfere, do not see a neighbor. The beach is great, beach umbrellas and chairs enough sand. Access to the sea is worse, use the built pontoon. a few meters... More
