I cannot fault this hotel. It is a large hotel complex adjacent the beach but somehow retains the personnel touch. The staff are friendly, helpful and very well trained. The rooms are spotless and regularly well serviced with all the facilities and well appointed. It has indoor and outdoor pools and spa facilities.
The surrounding area offers very little outside the complex although you can access the beach. The complex itself has a wide variety of inexpensive restaurants to suit all tastes, mainly around a small lake where there is also a casino. There are shops too with a wide variety of goods aimed mainly at tourists. There are two light shows each night in the small lake. If you want a special meal with a special person, I would recommend the main hotels Kiplings Brasserie Restaurant which is very good indeed and also not expensive.
I don’t think this is a long stay hotel, a night or two at most, but you will not be disappointed.
