    Good Hotel, Great beach

    The food could do with being better, but it was OK. The beach and our room were excelent.

  • 8,0.Very good

    Clean, well laid out and attractive site. Few problems with insects. Beautiful shrubbery. Great that no children but still uncomfortably loud at times during the day due to poor quality and overused amplifier and sound system. Peace and quiet, it seemed, was not the priority. Evening entertainments were fine. Tennis courts were cracking up but adequate. Rooms are spacious with balcony and views but fittings are cheap and worn - some don't function. Food and drink, whilst plentiful, are at best mediocre. Most staff, not all, were cheerful and helpful. There is a general need to incentivise by providing a continuous stream of tips throughout to room cleaning staff, bar staff, waiters, attendants....

    I was very unhappy with my room. I paid for 'ocean view'. There is no such thing - we were in the line of rooms closest to the ocean, but you couldn't actually see it. What we saw was a wall of trees and bushes. Not at all what I expected. That's really false advertising.

    Grounds were well kept and tidy. Beach was immaculate. Definitely in need of an upgrade. Food and liquor selection was minimal and not all areas of the hotel open.

    I thought for the price, this was a great value, veranda was lovely, food and bar staff very good and friendly, food offerings were surprisingly good and creative. Beach and water were amazing. Inroom towels and bedding were a bit sad and we both got bitten ferociously by bedbugs. Front desk staff were rude and not very helpful
