If you like to relax by the beach and lie in a sun chair next to the pool then you will like this hotel. The hotel is situated just next to the beach and from the pool area you have a nice view over the entire beach. The hotel grounds for the hotel is very large and covers a big area with small parks and walking paths which make a nice impression.
In general this is a very nice hotel which I can recommend but...
The hotel is a little torn and worn and in our rooms we found some cockroaches in our room. I also suspect the room above our room had water damage as there was a very unpleasant smell of mould in our room mixed with another smell of insect poison which was very unpleasant. Another remark is that even though the staff is very friendly and smile at you nothing happens. Some examples, I asked for an adapter to my room, it took four hours and four reminders to get the adapter. I asked for a menu to eat, it took half an hour and three reminders and in the end I went somewhere else as the staff failed to provide me with a menu.
The thing my family love most about the hotel was the beach and the waves in the sea. The waves are big and very fun to bath in. Do be aware of the currents though. The swimming pool is very good and they have a child pool. By the pool you can sit and have something to drink and have a very nice view over the pool and the beach.
