I must say, after a very bad start with them, where they didnt have the rooms for us, when we reached, everything was better.
The location is excellent, the service is decent, so are the rooms.
However, when i visited, the hotel was under renovation, thus only a part of it was accessible.
Food isnt that great, would recommend walking down to the other hotels close by for that.
Though they have it is a novelty, the salt water pool, just wasnt for me.
