Nice hotel, near many attractions
We had a nice stay, the room was clean and breakfast plentiful. My only gripe is with the beach -- the dried seaweed should be cleaned out daily.

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Good food, nice rooms can be recommended
The food was good and the rooms were nice and the sunbathing facilities were good IF you managed to get a sun bed. There were just little things that could have been better such as, 2 times we had problems with our room key and needed a new one, we had all inclusive and should have beennable to have soup when arriving late, but that wasn’t so. The map of the property is not very discriptive.etc. But all in all, a nice place to stay

Don’t stay here
The rooms were dirty , doesn’t look anyrhing like the pictures. Staff are extremely rude. It feels like 3 star not 5 star.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Rooms are not 5 star
The rooms are not 5 star. Super small, no mini bar, only an empty fridge and pretty basic. The other installations (swimming pool and restaurants) are good in general.
