We had a room with private verandah looking across the palm gardens to the sea. In the evenings it was wonderful to sit watching the sun go down. Our room was fabulous but annoyingly this category of room does not have double beds and the singles cant be comfortably converted - odd! Service was good and the building was nice.
Negatives: you must be down by 8.30am to get a sunbed on the beach. They dont have enough for even half of the guests, and this is something they must address because it causes such disappointment and even anger. The government restricts the numbers on the beach, but why cant they utilise the sea-edge of the garden? A major rethink is necessary. The golfers cant have all the garden!
Food and drink is excellent but absurdly expensive compared to the shacks, where we had delicious meals.
The provision of tables for breakfast is woefully inadequate. The hotel wasnt anywhere near full but there were always people waiting for shady outdoor tables. The tables were far too close and the whole place crazily busy with waiters and guests. The food itself was superb.
At these prices wifi should be free.
Beach and sea wonderful.
