Clean beach towels every day. 2 x big swimming pools. Literally on the beach to go for snorkeling. Shops about 900m away. Really very convenient, clean and...

3rd year of staying here. Very nice hotel with friendly staff and immaculately clean. Rooms serviced daily to high standard and good food. Right next to beach and 2 good pools (although one was being relined during my stay this year). Highly recommended :)

When we entered the room, we were surprised to receive a honeymoon present. The place is very relaxing, right at the beach. The service was very friendly and we enjoyed our stay very much. We were at dinner once, and it was only average, especially in relation to its price. The rooms very clean, but one notices that the hotel...
