Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The hotel was pretty but needs some new carpeting and furniture in the bar/ outside seating area. I liked that the pool was close to the beach, but I was disappointed with the adult pool, it was small, partially covered and out of the way. The staff was mostly friendly. I would recommend to families, but for adults, that want quiet, find another, especially with a nice regular size adult pool.
