Very good value. Can't fault position, cleanliness or friendliness. We stayed bed only as there are an excellent choice of good restaurants within walking distance and we prefer to choose where to eat (see my restaurant reviews if interested).
ROOM TIP - top floor "pool view" rooms are best. Many have also got a really good ocean view and are well away from all the stray cats. Ours was 612 with afternoon sun on the balcony and wonderful views of the sunset over the ocean every evening. We requested this room based on previous reviews by telephone a few days before arrival and they were happy to help.
Rather than repeat all the valid compliments paid in other reviews I shall only mention the couple of minor complaints:
1) Television sets are old, worn-out and with badly distorted sound. We asked to change sets, which was done promptly, but for a set that was just as bad. A small investment would make a big difference to guests' comfort.
2) Wi fi is advertised in every room. I'm typing this on my balcony which is the only place I get anything like acceptable Internet. If you need wi fi don't go for a top floor room (612).
3) The gym is just about adequate, but on several mornings the water was empty. In this heat that's just not acceptable, and despite repeated requests it took a strong complaint on the third day before this was resolved. The only sign we saw of shoddy housekeeping as everything else is very well maintained.
Really no other negatives. A very good choice and heartily recommended, but do book room only - this resort is a foodie's paradise and is well worth exploring.
