Just back after spending 4 nights with my family (15/9-19/9/13) . It was planned to be 3 and i added one more night as i loved the place.
I had a good rate that was very competitive if compared to similar 5 stars hotels.
The hotel has a huge landscape which i loved a lot .
The lobby was just fine . The pools are huge with clear water and a smart idea of having a small shallow strip around it for babies .
On your way to the beach you pass through the bungalows area with the huge lake , trees and palms that gives you the impression of the country side .
The beach is perfect with volley beach and small football court and an amazing jetty .
I guess the room needs more decoration to be a 5 stars one yet it was VERY clean and fully equipped even with water boiler , tea , Nescafe , .... . My picky wife was just happy and , for me , it was an added value :)
The food was just the main weak point there . Though i found it tasty and adequate in quantity as i was on an All-Inclusive system , the repetition of food with no alternatives was so boring . Definitely , it is not a 5 stars buffet BUT i overcame this problem by booking in two of the four a la cart restaurants they have so it was a kind of change. I do recommend the oriental and the Italian restaurants . Didn't try the other two (Chinese , Russian)
Didn't face any problems with water . They put two (1.5 Liters) bottles every day for a double room to use during your staying at your room and you find water everywhere for free while you are outside . I guess it is fair enough and very adequate .
After all , I spent a very good holiday with my family there and I do recommend this place especially if you gonna have a competitive rate and sure i will be there again if i have the chance .
