4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great staff, great location, but nothing special
The overall stay was nice. Check-in and Check-out were very quick and straightforward. The room was nice and comfortable with both ventilator and AC, a small minibar. The wardrobe was only a hanger section, so no shelves for you to put you clothes but it wasn´t a big deal in my case. The bathroom had a leak and kept getting wet, but they fixed it throughout my stay. There was no wifi in my room, so because I had to work while there, I had to go to the restaurant area to use the wiFi. The food was decent and with good prices. The service from the beach staff and the bar were very good and friendly. cocktails were ok and the prices were a bit on the highside. It is a nice choice of stay if you want to relax in a big hotel with decent facilities, but if you´re looking to enjoy more the bach and what the island has to have and use the room basically to shower and sleep, you might consider a slightly cheaper accommodation, since this one despite being good, has nothing special.

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
The upper unit was very spacious, comfortable and spotless. The management and staff are very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is good and the others meals were very good including great pizza. We extended our stay as we liked it so much. Unfortunately, the beach (all hotels) has a litter problem.
