Recent guest reviews

The property was beautiful! The check-in was slow - a lot of people arrived at the same time. The night we were there, the electricity went out for about 15-20 minutes. The morning after that, the water wasn't working.

Great gardens, pools both indoors and outdoors. Access to beach is via a short 5 min flat walk

I liked how clean the entire property was. The staff was good and we never had any issues.

Amazing breakfast, pool, and beach!! The review site is demanding 50 characters.

Great staff, comfortable room and convenient location

The hotel could have been so nice. But their focus isn't customer satisfaction. They're for some reason very rule driven e.g. can pick beach towels only from the spa - why these aren't available pool side was a mystery to me. The decor of the hotel is definitely weird - the reception looks like you have entered a salon with large pictures of models. The outdoor pool is literally unusable because the water is freezing cold. The indoor pool is warmer but has a limit of 25 people which is ridiculous given the large number of rooms they have. The hotel is far (30 mins) walk from the town - they could run shuttles to and from the hotel.

We truly loved being here. It felt a home away from home.

Cons: front desk staff Pros: pools and grounds, all other staff, activities, scuba club!

Hotel expensive if you are not able to use facilities and pool and spa closes at 8 pm. We arrived at 7 and had no chance to do so! Silly! Beds uncomfortable. Hotel far from any restaurants and food there expensive and of poor quality! Look elsewhere if just passing thru... Consider if you have a car and are planning to stay for a beach or resort experience... Pool did LOOK lovely!

Decent room. A bit of a walk from town but easy taxi ride.
