8/10 Very good

The place has a unique atmosphere. We stayed at a junior suite and it was very clean and comfortable. The kraken (bar and restaurant) has such an amazing vibe with great service. Pool wasn’t clean as expected, pool bar was closed and seating area around the pool is very poor and very uncomfortable tanning beds.
