I spent 11 days in this hotel. I chose it for my honeymoon and I have to say that it was just average holiday, and for this money it was less than average. I was dissapointed. We were accomodated in garden side cottage - the room was out-dated, I had no problem with this but there was no enough space for our clothes, so we have everything in our luggage all holiday and we had a problem with bathroom: poor pressure in shower and bad flushing of the toilette.
Food: veeery poor choice of food, I think that I am not very challenging about food, but I missed some ham and vegetable at breakfast. The lunch was the worst, after week I stopped to go there. I do not think that sandwiches or tortillas are appropriate to lunch - and no as specialty of the day. At all it was very repetitive and adapted for Americans and British. About thematic dinners - I was confused, in my opinion it was far far away from any theme.
Entertainment: There was live music few times other days it was nothing and I was bored.
Bar: There were many drinks to choose. It was positive but there were no space to sit - a few couches - always occupied by the same people.
Beach: It was ok. Enough sunbeds but not enough privacy. And it could be cleaner. People were so rude that day light their cigarettes off in the sand and left there.
Sea: Perfect, nice and clean.
I travel a lot and this experience was disappointing for me. For example I was in Dominican Republic last year, also in 3 stars hotel and for less money (500 Euro less per person) and there was a lot of food and everything was much much better.
