8/10 Very good

It was a pleasant stay with decent rooms. The bathroom could use some improvements (old towel rails, old looking shower curtain). The pool, beach, and restaurant were nice and comfortable.

4/10 Fair

Old hotel and not worth the stay for $60-80 per night. The property is very old and not maintained well, most people complain about hygiene. My wife had a conference for her office at this place and out of 15 people 3 got food poisoning.

8/10 Very good

We booked a hotel with full board, but we haven't spent much time there because we've been on day trips. The staff is incredibly pleasant, the hotel is spotless, and the food is great. However, the meal service was quite slow. We waited nearly an hour for a meal.
