We found the app very useful, finally not an app who wants to sell you things, rather give you information you usually looking for as a traveller. Travelled a lot and... More

Some of the staff were extremely friendly (particularly the pool attendants.), We enjoyed our stay, with many lazy days spent by the quiet pool soaking up... More

Nice facility.. friendly staff. Nice buffet. Location was perfect just at the beach. This time the beach was not accessible but should be nice for the season. Lot of facilities and activities for relaxation.

We have been here twice. The resort is beautiful, long stretch of beach for walks and the rooms are great with a good size. We haven't used all the facilities, but the gym, pool and everything else looked well maintained and in good working condition. Internet connection was quite strong. The layout of the resort is great with lots of... More
