We booked a suit for one night in September 2013. We had to wait a bt until it was our turn to check in. The room was really nice. It was new with the smell of pain still in it The good thing is that our package included half board. Their food was good.
We were travelling on our anniversary. This was explained to the hotel in advance. The room didn't have anything in it to resemble this. The funny thing is that a butler knocked on our door and awoke us from our nap to say that he had keft some sweets in the room but it seems they were removed by housekeeping.
The beach was not sand. It felt like crused shells and hurts the feet. A short walk in the water and it gets deep. The main pool though was very nice. It was deep in the middle and bid enough for a good swim.
Likewise the check out took forever to get over with.
I guess they need sometime to get their act together as one would expect a more organised serviced from a Sofitel.
