Only the reception can be classed 5*. Rooms are OK, but carpet was stained and the room smelt a bit like an old retirement home, if you know what I mean. We travelled on 28/2/14 and I'm writing this as I sit in the reception cafe area. There is no helpful book in your room with times and places etc so take notes from your rep at the welcome meeting and make sure to ask all the questions you'd normally find the answers to in a hotel book usually found in every other hotel I've been to.
The food is average for this country, and snacks are not readily available. Times are limited as is the alcohol. On the plus side, the staff are friendly and speak excellent English and French.
Not much to do outside the summer months. The temperature at the moment is supposed to be low 20's, but it feels more like 14/15. Since arriving I've worn jeans and a jumper as I find the aircon makes the reception area cool, and outside isn't any warmer. I wouldn't return here for another holiday as I've been to better all inclusive hotels.
After having a wander around, I get the impression that the staff are definitely 5*, but the owners have let the maintenance slip and so too has the star rating.
