Completely different from what it appears on the website, very misleading. The rooms are average but the hotel itself is just a bit awkward. The whole design of the hotel is just a bit strange, The room 'views' are all semi-blocked by something, not at all like the 'panorama' they claim to have on their website. The private pools they have are basically a tiny square you can plunge into while your neighbours can watch, no privacy. The beds are uncomfortable, and no proper blanket. Its basically just a sheet. However, they do have a scratchy blanket stuffed away in the closet which you can use. Woo. The internet is very slow, just like that little tram thing that transports people down to their 'beach'. While walking into the ocean I stepped on a sea urchin and was told to go to the spa. Obviously I couldn't get all the spikes out on my own so I searched on the internet on what to do, every review suggested to soak the wound in vinegar, however the people at the spa did not mention any of this. After i explained that I stepped on a sea urchin the lady behind the counter just said "Oh" and handed me a needle and tweezers. Seems like this has happened to other guests too, but there are no warning to watch your steps as there might be sea urchins. Overall, We were very disappointed with this hotel, really expected more as their website is very misleading. Don't bother.
