The hotel is quite a distance from town and you will need to organsie transport or use the courtesy bus. The whole resort looks pretty tired and it feels as if hundreds of rooms are 'packed in' into the facility. Due to the high room density, there is a fair amount of after hours noise from the other guests and quite often you will see the shadow of a guest passing right in front of your window which can be a little disconcerting. The rooms themselves (at least the one we were in) have undergone refurbishment in the last few years and they are quite new and comfortable. The pools are pretty good, however they are not heated, so while the air temp may be a pleasent 27 degrees, the water might be 20 degrees. The restaurant was also disappointing so we dined out every night. (but again as you are not near tthe city centre this is problematic).
