Nice staff. Was taken aback by the rigidity in rules which i didnt see before, eg, inability to get a set off against bills for one guest...

Rooms are spacious with a different take on floor plan. Food was great, but I would not recommend the buffet as it's crowded with large tour groups. The bar was deserted and the same song kept playing over and over again. Service at the upper level pool was non-existing, but much better at the lower level. Spa was great and...

Its a beautiful hotel in a good location. The rooms were spacious and luxurious. The food was very good. However the service was very slow and not efficient. The hotel is beach front but the sea is very rough and you can swim.
