Where to start? The good perhaps? The good... hmmm the view of the sun setting and the beautiful beach and perhaps the rooms which were very comfy. The bad?

Hotel with good frontage. Food was sub standard with refilling taking ages. In many instances the food was not refilled. Get to all meals early or experience having nothing to eat. Restaurant manager/chefs poor service in ensuring constant refills.

Visited with our family of 3 kids. The hotel was beautiful, superb service all round. The meals were delicious, though there could have been more of a variety. Comfortable rooms, and most importantly plenty of things to keep the kids entertained.
