We've booked for a Spa Escape all inclusive stay in this hotel and everything was great. Everything was smooth from the check in and check out out with the help of Assem and Catrina from the front desk. Turquoise Restaurant staff were also excellent especially Jean (kudos to you), also Roxanne and Jordan. They were all friendly and accommodating, always attentive if they can assist us with anything. I think the kind of service that they give is worth more than anything and what really made our stay a fab one. We were given a complimentary cake and a special surprise decoration for our anniversary in our room. Although some of the restaurants were closed due to the pandemic I still think the all-inclusive package is worth it. It was a lovely, relaxed getaway for the whole family. We also loved the relaxing spa treatment as part of the SPA escape package. All staff are kind and helpful from the pool bar, the beach, to the lounge bar and the restaurant. Overall, the stay was fabulous. We felt well looked at during our short 2 nights staycation. We will be back for sure. Thank you for the wonderful experience. Read less

Wonderful experience with great staff. The room was comfortable, the food was great and it felt like everyone was keen to 'look after us'. A big shout out to Ahmet the skater waiter and Frank the bartender at the main pool- they added something extra to the experience :)
