Really good holiday with good snorkeling. The hotel has a very long stretch of beach with plenty of sunbeds.Swimming shoes are not really necessary as there are man made pathways into the sea. If you want sunbeds on the front row go towards the far end of the beach or you can pay to reserve sunbeds on the front row... More

Our stay was faultless apart from the dreadful food being served in the evening, why such a drop in standard from lunch to supper? We did report our findings to the duty manager at the time. The beach bar serves food 3 nights a week, Lobster, Seafood... More

Wonderful staff who keep the rooms spotless and can't do enough for you. Rooms are large, comfortable and quiet. Food is excellent and a la carte is available at the Beach Bar ( our favourite place) for a small extra charge. The best point is the long sandy beach that you can snorkel off to the reef in a few...
