What can I say about The Fortress? Is it luxurious? Yep certainly is! We had an ocean room which was enormous with a fabulous bathroom, large seating area, the biggest bed I have ever seen and a balcony with a comfy table and chairs. There was FRESH MILK in the fridge for the complimentary tea and coffee. Staff were all very welcoming and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. The spa was lovely - I had a lovely facial.
All the public areas were clean and tidy and there were ample sun beds and lots of other comfortable seating areas. The swimming pool was devine. Large and beautifully warm. Staff were very attentive with numerous beach towels available. There was a fab poolside menus and drinks on hand.
The dining experience was good - the food was well cooked and the service professional. My only concern would be the depth of choice. We stayed 3 nights and with the menus available being served at both lunch and dinner I think anyone staying longer might begin to get slightly bored with the choice,
