I've been here during New Year 2013 time. It was a novelty for us to pass into new year on beach, at 25 Celsius! A memorable experience, and the staff worked hard to meet the guest's expectations. At least they tried! Let me tell you the pros and cons of my sejour: check in lasted 45-60 minutes. The room, a standard one, was quite old, it looks like 15 years ago, but clean. I undestood that the premier one is newer and better. I havent seen. It was strange for me but nice and perfect normal there, to see the lizard on the wall in your room!
The resor has a extremely big garden, full of plants and animals like monkeys, lizards, hedgehogs, s.o..I saw a limited no of moschitos but still there are few, take your repellant with you.
Despite we've been 3 persons, in 75% of the cases the table was prepared for 2 people :). it looked almost always a surprise for the staff when I was asking for the 3rd place at the table. except the last day :); but the reaction was always prompt. The food was very good, always and especially for the New year party; a small hint here, they alternated buffet style with a mixed style buffet + a la carte, not alwas clear comunicated. tea was good but the coffe was bellow my expectation.
The beach is amazing; white and fine sand with crabs and a lot of other creatures! During the mornings there were the low water period we walked in the ocean and seen a lot of marine life forms. The access on the beach during the night is limited; there are acesss gates which are locked around 22:00.The staff at the pools or at the beach was friendly and helpfull.
Overall, a positive experience. Enjoy!
