If you only measure this resort against your expectations, you are likely to be disappointed. Other than the spectacular fitness room, I can conceive of no grounds whatsoever for giving this place a five-star rating. On the other hand, if you step back and look at the value that you are actually getting for your money, it isn't bad at all. The service is decent, one disagreeable receptionist notwithstanding; the food is reasonable, if lacking in a bit of spice; and the pool area is huge and very well-maintained. What really did disappoint was the complete absence of a fresh fruit bonanza in the morning, which we assumed would be standard at a five-star establishment, as well as the archaic decor in the rooms. (We can't be the only visitors to be mystified by the "cross-sectioned table lamps stuck on the wall" motif.) As for the location, we didn't use the beach much during our stay, but that was because it just wasn't hot enough, which is hardly the hotel's fault. I imagine that the setting would be fantastic during peak season. In sum, if you are after unadulterated modern luxury, this probably isn't the place for you. But if you're looking for a nice, relaxing break at a reasonable price, and you can put up with a few imperfections, this could be an option worth looking at.
