Lovely hotel overall
Lovely hotel in beautiful location near the beach. Great customer service. Main drawbacks - pillows too thin, food became very repetitive after a few days, lack of pool loungers available as towel policy not enforced by management.

4/10 Fair

Nice Hotel but with shortcomings....
From our 5 night stay the good points and not so good were as follows: Good - modern and spacious rooms, good location, cocktails by the pool, 10 minute walk to an amazing beach. Friendly and accommodating staff. Hotel clean and well kept. Not so good - The food was very repetitive, buffet only and dinner was largely the same as lunch in terms of choices. We were usually in and out within 30 minutes and it felt like a college canteen and the food uninspiring and the same virtually every night. Evening entertainment was really poor, the bar was very basic with no charm or character whatsoever. Pool was cold and the hotel busy, making it feel a bit too crowded and difficult to keep your own space given Covid-19. In conclusion, the hotel is probably fine for a family with young children but anyone looking for a little more style, sophistication and decent food (which it had none of) should probably look elsewhere.

Very nice all inclusive hotel
Hotel was big. Food was great choice and plenty of it. Rooms were comfortable although air con wasn't on while we were there, luckily had a ceiling fan. Amazing views and location. Pool area was nice although ideally could be bigger for number of guests. Staff were friendly and helpful. Drinks selection was very good and normal brands not cheap copies. Overall highly recommended.
