As a break from the mass produced food, thee food was good although not a massive choice, but the king prawns are well worth going for. Well priced and good wine.

Stayed in the hotel in Sept 2015, part of all inclusive is 2 visits to the Chinese buffet. The food was excellent & restaurant very nice although could do with some ambient / chill out music to compliment the experience.
