We have been here several times and each time it is a great experience. From the lovely staff to the gorgeous location and scenery. We have always had lovely clean rooms/suites and attention from everyone. The beaches and local area are beautiful, we also enjoy the many local cats that visit the grounds too - they do not bother you... More

We loved the pool which is salt water and a bit cold which we loved because we could always swim often on our own. Breakfast was... More

Very enjoyable holiday here, excellent access to beaches, good pools and views of the sea. Stayed as a family with one young child, the room had a small fridge and microwave, we used the sofabed in the lounge for our little girl. Want to find out how much it will cost me to come back next year!

Within a month of staying at this hotel in September 2015, my wife and I decided to visit again this year. We were not disappointed. From arrival to departure, the staff were wonderful.

The hotel is very good for people who enjoy swimming pools. There is one for children and two for adults.The outside pool is on a great spot with views of the ocean and palmtrees. The inside pool and jacuzy smell of desinfectants which make the place a bit intoxicating. The beaches are a short walking distance ( 5/10 minutes). You... More

My wife and I spent two relaxing weeks here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room standard is good for the price and the hotel facilities are excellent. The pool area is fantastic with plenty of space on a nice lawn. There is also an indoor pool plus a sauna and gym which is well enough equipped for a shorter stay.... More
