We really enjoyed staying at the hotel. The resort is set between palm trees leading on to a lovely beach. Our room was a very good size with a big bathroom and was clean. We were very well looked after by the friendly staff, who were always very helpful. The buffet restaurant always offered a wide variety of food and we especially enjoyed the a la carte restaurant next to the beach. We also loved the music and dancing in the evenings at the bar next to the pool. All in all a resort with a nice ambience and overall feeling. Read less
