It was my second time this hotel so I knew what to wait. The hotel itself is ok, clean, pool area good and the location a little bit out from noice. If you wait excellent all-inclusive, this is not your place. Local beer and drinks were ok, the food was below average. But it is so cheap to eat somewhere... More

When you see the pictures of this hotel, with the nice lobby, pools and pretty large rooms, you might think you're up for a treat. But you're wrong. You're wrong because on top of all that, there are the services who complete a 4 stars hotel. And this is not a 4 stars hotel. The staff from restaurant and bar... More
