Don’t know where to start, in summary Extremely rude staff Dark basic rooms Poor food Tui not interested in assisting with complaints. Broken sun beds A disappointing trip apart from some nice people we met. Need I go on, avoid at all costs.......

Crowd seemed to be 60 & above. If you want to relax this is a resort for you, if you are looking for entertainment this is not the resort for you. The food is OK, can be better. No premium alcohol, the selection of alcohol is limited. Too many birds and flies all over some of the foods.

My wife asked for a glass of water at 11.20am and was told the bar is shut until 12pm. We accept the restrictions imposed by Covid 19 but a glass of water!!!!! We reported our sliding door wouldn’t operate and was told maintenance would be informed. 6 days later the door still doesn’t slide. A great shame as there are so many good things to write about here, common sense and delivering on what is said would make such a difference Read less

This hotel is lovely and there is lots for everyone to do for all ages. We enjoyed the aqua aerobics and volley ball games in the pool each day. We also enjoyed playing pool and table tennis, however, due to the virus, the hotel did limit the number of activities including taking away the pool cues and table tennis bats. We also all enjoyed the watersports at the hotel which were included as part of the package. The water skiing and sailing were great. With the watersports you book them each morning at the watersports hut. From experience the sea conditions for the motorised watersports were better in the morning so would recommend booking a morning slot if it’s available. Also motorised watersports don’t run on a Sunday. The food at the hotel was lovely, a great array of choice to suit everyone’s needs. Breakfast included all the full English bits, cereals, pancakes, fruit and pastries. Lunch was either buffet or order from the small snack bar menu. Dinner at Enid’s was lovely and the buffet was also great. Again due to the virus the hotel did change all evening meals to buffet only in our stay. This wasn’t a problem to us and the hygiene level was great with all guests hand sanitising before entering the restaurant and staff were wearing gloves. The pool area was lovely with very comfortable sun beds. We did not notice a rush to put towels out, we tended to put them down on our way to breakfast about 7:30/8:00. After we had finished breakfast though lots of beds had been reserved by the pool, although the beach and grass area had free beds all day. The rooms were small and basic but had everything we needed. We did not spend much time in the room so it was suitable for us. We did book some excursions to swim with the turtles and snorkel in the clear blue waters which were fantastic, would thoroughly recommend them. My only minor points are that bottled water is not included in the all inclusive package but they do have water stations around the hotel to fill up bottles so a tip is to bring some bottles with you. Also there is tea and coffee available but during the day but this is help yourself in a paper cup. We are all for the paper cups but for a 4 star hotel I would sometimes to expect it to be in a proper cup/mug. These are very minor picky points and certainly would not stop me from returning to this great hotel which has fantastic staff. Read less

The resort is beautiful and the beaches and ocean are right outside your door. The food is amazing and all the staff are friendly and helpful. They also have activities planned each day which are fun as well, the activities director Adam is very professional and outgoing.
