We liked our 10-day stay in a separate villa. The ocean was just in a few metres from our garden. The apartment itself was great: light, clean and very large (more than 100 metres). Huge green territory.

Food at main restaurant is bad. Full of mosquitoes. Very bad live music. Sad and cold atmosphere at dinner buffet. Food is bad at main restaurant. Always bad weather. Nothing around hotel vicinity. The pool which looks huge on photos is in fact a 90cm wide long canal . But really nice friendly services.

We had a very nice stay at this hotel. The food was very good. The staff is very friendly and helpful but they are not very organised because the hotel is understaff. The room is also very cosy. The bed is very comfortable.
