Rooms are clean and well presented, there were a few issues with the bathroom, but to our surprise the maintenance man actually managed to fix them. It's a typical tropical beach resort kind of place and if you like bright orange and white you'll love this place, though it lacks refinement in it's fixtures and fittings that it should have at this price (Fake wood laminate flooring, irons provided but with a plug type that the room doesn't have - hope you brought your own adapter).
For a relaxing lazy beach holiday this is a very good place to unwind, however the meals are hit and miss. The half board (Breakfast and Dinner) package gives you a six course - or possible five if they forget the tea and coffee, which they did every time, meal for dinner:
Usually a starter that may be heaven or mediocre, followed by what always tastes like instant soup, next can be frankly strange: some sort of sorbet or ice cream intended to clean the palate, but a super-sweet lime sorbet or avocado ice cream doesn't really do that. The chef has a tendency to cook things too hot so don't expect juicy tender meats or fish, but he is trying hard at food he has probably never tasted in it's native environment. Desert will be either too sweet or just nothing like it's description. Having said all this, it's still some of the best food in the area unless you want local street food, which is excellent, but not something we could eat more than once a day.
The staff were the usual mix of really nice and friendly and the not so much.
