Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
My stay was less than 3 days and the staff was professional and courteous. We were welcomed by staff at the entrance who helped with our luggage and directed to a swift check in process. The “garden view” received was not as nice a view as we imagined based on online images. However, walking around the facility the side facing the ocean was much better maintained. Breakfast was nice, and the staff was very attentive to our needs. The room was clean, but my initial hand towel/wash rag had what look liked dried up gum on it. The front desk had it replaced right away. The decor around the hotel from top to bottom was charming.

Not a 5star hotel… staff were friendly and helpful but the level of accommodation was not what I’d expect of a 5star location. Room was significantly worn/dated and balcony which was an upgrade benefit was dirty/not clean…

Fantastic hotel
We loved everything about our stay. The hotel was beautiful, really clean and well maintained. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food was lovely with lots of choice and the buffet was of a very good quality. Covid measures were in place. Our room was perfect with a large terrace overlooking the beautiful pool and beach and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and can’t wait to return.

Perfect hotel in perfect location
The hotel was very good, located at the beginning of 7km long sand beach. Breakfast was excellent. Inner swimming pool is too shallow to swim. Outer swimming pool is large and deep enough, but was very cold in November. Location is perfect for those who love nature, sun, calmness. We enjoyed our stay very much.
