This is a nice hotel but we were really disappointed at the quality of the rooms. We were only staying three nights and wanted to splash out on a nice room with a sea view but BEWARE, few rooms actually look like the images online. The first room we were given - a deluxe double with sea view - the air conditioning was broken so we were moved. Having been shown a further two rooms, it became clear that few rooms have been refurbished to the standards shown on the images so we ended up paying for a sea view that we didn't actually get.
While the staff were very accommodating in offering us other benefits, we feel a little misguided by the difference in quality of the rooms as shown on Expedia and the hotel's own website to reality. The rooms I saw certainly don't match the images online. If you want luxury, there are better rooms for your money.
The pool is great, breakfast and restaurant is good, and it's a quiet area if you want peace. But don't be fooled by the photos!
