5/5 Excellent

The customer service at this resort is exceptional. We had an issue with the configuration of our apartment and it was proactively resolved by the staff. The amenities are fantastic and the pool is as good as it looks in the pictures. The location is good with shops and cafes close by. The beach is a 5 min walk. It is close to the airport but we did not notice aircraft noise.

5/5 Excellent

Overall an excellent place to stay. Would have got top marks if some of the surfaces had been cleaned. However, could not really ask for much more. If you are lucky enough to be on the ground floor in the apartments then it is a very short stride to the pool. Will go back when I am next in the area

We all liked the fact that we could invite visitors into the resort while we were there. The staff were not in our face but were there when we needed them anytime.

5/5 Excellent

We loved the heated pool and spa as we visited in winter. The kids could still swim and enjoy pool. I loved being so close to the pool, we could literally step off of our porch into the water. The rooms were nice and the beds comfortable. Everything we needed was provided in the kitchen. The clothes washer and dryer was handy to have as well. The reception was especially friendly. I would definitely return.
