Stefano and the other staff at the front desk are excellent and go above and beyond to assist guests. This place could be really great with some changes.
First, the restaurant and bar need a chef who creates excellent dishes not buffet type, cheap food. Also, breakfast is not good. They again need "real" food not cheap quality that fills you up and that's it. Also, I would have loved a fresh salad with maybe, tuna, for lunch or grilled fish.
Secondly, the room needed to be better taken care of. Things were chipped, paint flaking, and seemed old. We loved the bones of the room, though because of the space, kitchen, and patio.
The beach and pools are great along with the location. However, I really don't like paying extra for a lawn chair. I find this ridiculous after paying so much money to stay at the hotel. I also did not find this place the cleanest. This could also be improved. This place is safe for kids, has wonderful grounds, and could really be special with some tender, loving care and revised food. The location is also excellent for excursions in the area. I hope this review helps to improve the hotel. I highly recommend a car.
