Pool was great for the kids! We had one faulty room - electrical issues, balcony door could not close, plumbing issue in toilet. The service and hospitality was lovely. Spa was not bad. Pool lifeguard quite attentive. Beach wasn't great and the vendor at the beach kept harassing us to get the kids on their horse.

We had a lovely stay, but we're disappointed by the lack of real bacon at breakfast and also most of the dishes were luke warm, despite having lots of choices. We understand that peoples of other religions may have issues with pork products, but surely there could be an option for westerners.

We enjoyed the room which is next to the pool, kids could enjoy their swim anytime they like from the room. Excellent service of every staff. Variety of goods within walking distance. Good clinics around for my kid when needed. Two nights was not long enough to enjoy at the activity available!
