For me it was an unforgettable experience, great people, nice entertainment, delicious food. Clean swimming pools. I spent here the whole of Easter and I swam until I couldn't swim any more. It is indeed a majestic place to be.

Wonderful ambience, great food, great entertainment. Just improve the strength of wifi in the rooms and entertainment options for the children, such as board games, boat rides and beach games like volleyball, snorkeling, wind surfing, equipment to build sand castles, etc

My stay was a worth one. Relaxing, exciting and above all awesome food. The facilities too were very accommodating and an amazing staff you have. Chef Moha, barman Karisa, George the attendant made my stay a worth one. I will really miss the resort; especially the food. It's a definitely visit again resort for me.
