The hotel is right on the beach and it is a fantastic beach. We stayed in the Deluxe room with a sea view which was awesome. The hotel also has a fabulous pool, large with a sunken bar and a separate kids pool.
However, where this hotel lacks is in the service. Room service was very slow and service in the restaurants was also slow and unresponsive. The hotel was full during our stay and there were just not enough people to handle a full dining room. This was primarily in the breakfast buffet, we tried the Chinese restaurant as well as the Italian one and there the (ala carte) service was very good. The restaurant food was fabulous and affordable, while the breakfast buffet was only average. The hotel could also do with a bit of upgrading, the rooms look a little worn out in places.
