This is a lovely resort. Private beach. All inclusive except premium brand drinks and some restaurants. Very nice. Downsides are the pool is salt water and the service staff at the pool are extremely slow so going directly to the bar for drinks is highly recommended for more prompt service. Also English understanding is hot and miss. Some speak very... More

Lovely Hotel, nice relaxing break. Staff work tirelessly to make your stay enjoyable. I have a gluten intolerance and the restaurant manager welcomed me every evening to go through with me dish by dish what I could and couldn't eat, which to me is such a relief and I couldn't thank them enough for my special treatment. Hotel is clean,... More

We spent 8 days in this wonderful place spoiling ourselves. Immaculate gardens and settings, a private beach with fine white sand and a sunset from the Jetty (bar) with a glass of wine was second to none. Go for the deluxe rooms with a beautiful view.

We have been in Gemma hotel for 5 nights 2 adults with 1 teenager. The hotel is huge and the sea is wonderful. It's said it is all included but not all. The food was bellow average. Room was ok. Every evening there is a show. The beach was the best part for walking in the morning.

We stayed in hotel for 11 night in june celebrating our honeymoon. After a 36 hours flight, when we entered in the hotel's garden we really felt we are in paradise. The staff was extremly kindly and helpful and they really made our stay amaizing. From the first minute spent there all we could say was 'hakuna matata' (no worries).... More

We felt really spoiled during our stay here - the staff looked after us really well; the food was delicious and the variety impressive; the drinks endless and refreshing; the pool and beach both amazing; and the grounds immaculate. Our room was quite small, but that hardly mattered considering we barely spent any time in it!
