The hotel and resort itself are absolutely gorgeous, with fantastic beach frontage and glorious swimming pools. There are wonderful, shady courtyards with grape vines hanging down and a selection of really attractive sea front /poolside bars. The terrace for breakfast, lunch and dinner was absolutely beautiful; practically on the beach, and the quality of food was good. We were very... More

Beach view shown in brochure is not what we got, but we were moved; however, second move had adjoining door, so was not sound proof. We could hear baby crying in the night along with very loud snoring, loud enough to keep you awake. Also view was still marred by another building.... Food was average, but all staff were excellent,... More

I stayed here for 8 nights with my other half. First appearance was far from the best, although we were greeted with a smile and checked in very efficiently. Our room was very clean , modern and very spacious. We were only provided with one key card to the room for the whole of our stay which on the odd... More

Stayed 3 nights in a Superior bungalow Sea view. For Canadians and Americans I would compare this hotel with a 3-3.5 star all inclusive in the Caribbean.

We just returned from a short 1 week stay. As it was still pre-season the hotel was only partly open. One of the main block of standard rooms was still under renovation with labourers working throughout the day. A lot of the bungalows were yet to be furnished and there was a buzz of pre-opening around the resort. Flower pots... More
