Nice slopes at pool overlooking beach. Fair walk down to beach. Lots of restaurants nearby. Comfy main room with big bed and sea view. Lots of entertainment for kids...

I do have a complaint in regards to smoking on balconies I do feel this should be allowed , other than that I have no complaints , perhaps just the one day the cleaning of the room (making of he beds in the second room ) was rushed but on the whole a very nice resort.

We had a wonderful stay at Cabana Beach resort! All services were wonderful and the kids enjoyed the pool area the most! Also love that the resort is so close to most essential shops and of course the walking way on the beach.
