The common areas of this hotel were lovely. The grounds are well kept and the staff attentive. There is a private beach for adults---wonderful. We arrived a few days after they opened for the season so it was at about 11% occupancy. That combined with the recent terrorist attacks nearby made the place feel a little dead.
Not all the restaurants were open and so there was no variety in food. The food was ok, but nothing special....typical hotel buffet food. WATCH out for the monkeys that sweep down onto your table and steal food. Once the guards come by, they run away, but it is unnerving and unpleasant.
The rooms were very nice, but not luxury (both showers didn't work, grimy wine bottles in the mini bar.) The bed on the balcony was lovely and we napped there overlooking the sea. Unfortunately, we couldn't sleep with the balcony door open because of the monkeys!!
One unpleasant experience, and not the hotel's fault, though they could have warned us.....was that when we walked down the beach, we were harassed by guys on the beach. They followed us and made us very uncomfortable- especially with the recent risk to tourists. We could not go into town to browse around or eat local food. We had to grab a taxi to get away. :(
Bad wifi, but you should be on the beach instead anyway!!
I would stay here again in a more busy season.
