We stayed here three nights on a family holiday, the hotel had arranged airport pick-up which was convenient, thought the airport is just ten minutes away.
Our stay did not start out right as the room they gave us was one of the old ones - very dark, dingy, and the carpet had a musty smell. It was nothing like the nice rooms they show on their website. I went back to the reception and complained, and they agreed to switch us to the refurbished rooms - it was way better! Brighter colors, no odors, wood floors, so much nicer.
Breakfast was included, the restaurant was huge and always busy, but the food selection and variety is great. Lunch and dinners were out, a good way to experience the local flavor. The hotel is not far from town, a couple of times we just walked there and back along the beach.
One of the attractions of this hotel is the beach, and the fact that you get to view some amazing sunsets! We'd first considered staying at the Taj, would never have got to see the lovely sunsets.
Lastly, the staff, even for a big resort of this type, was quite helpful and pleasant. I have to especially mention the guys at the beach bar "Cba", they were great and played nice chill out music, we had a great time!
