The hotel is nice, we stayed in a room with the swimming pool by the beach and it was a great location. The service is a bit of a hit or miss in the main restaurant. We opted to get Club privileges and it was a nice touch.

Over priced holiday camp, under trained staff getting as much out of the tourist with out balancing value. Over charging just because they can. In any business its about reinvestment and its a shame because the fb staff are fantastic, with exception of Julian the assistant Gm.

Excellent Hotel Area including Garden, Rooms, Pool Area, Beach and SPA. Good Food Quality. In Pool Area no changing Rooms available. Poor Service Quality in Grove Buffet Restaurant, especially for beverages (this is not 5 stars!).

We’re a family of 16 people and we did a lot of activities with entertainment team. They have activities for kids and adults such as Latino night which was a lot of fun. They showed us basic salsa steps and my daughters loved it, also the whole family joined in their Trivia night at the cove restaurant and at the end we WON the excellent white wine we all shared at the end. The Carpe Diem team is very professional and friendly to us and they made our stay here very enjoyable. Read less
