Great stay here as a couple!
Stayed for 5 nights as a couple. Was a lovely hotel and pool area was great too. Amazing access to the beach & bars. Weather was amazing which made a big difference. All staff were friendly and helpful. Only part was that we had an evening flight and had to check out earlier. We were able to use amenities before going to the airport however the shower and toilet in the outdoor area were not all that great. Need modernising and expanding! Amazing stay overall.

Great hotel but tired bedroom
Beautiful hotel but let down slightly by the level of maintenance required. Hotel room was tired and jaded and in need of refurbishment but I wanted to take the bed linen home as it was amazing. Breakfast was excellent with great choice and staff were friendly and welcoming.
