We visited this hotel last year because it was hosting my nephew's wedding reception to a Thai girl. The wedding reception was down on the lawns beside the sea. It was amazing with wonderful food, charming wedding decor - round tables and long tables with impeccable white linen table and seat covers and lighting spiralling up the palm trees. It was like a film set - The most perfect wedding location.
We decided to make our visit from Ireland into a two week holiday and booked the hotel for the sheer convenience of being at the wedding location never guessing that we had chosen such a wonderful hotel. Our room was spacious, clean, quiet and with a well appointed bathroom. It was carefully cleaned every day.
The beach was delightful with soft sand and a nicely graduated waterline with excellent swimming. It was necessary to keep an eye on high and low tides for the best time to swim but that was not difficult as there was information on the tides in each bedroom and every day there was adequate high tide time to swim. The water was warm and clean. Having visited the Canary Islands previously in the winter, where swimming is mainly confined to pools, it was a joy to be able to swim in the sea on a good beach for only a small extra cost above visiting the Canaries from Britain - though I know a somewhat longer flight.
The friendliness and helpfulness of staff is outstanding and food choice and quality was excellent. Tim, the guest relations manager looked after us excellently. Our favourite restaurant was 'The Top of the Reef' and we found that buying the all-in meal tickets in advance was a great option.
After the wedding, when many guests had left, we took one of the villas with our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren. Our villa was well designed to give lots of privacy: each bedroom was large and had its own en-suite. This accommodation was the greatest delight with a good sized pool for adults and children who were learning to swim and to jump in - a granny's dream holiday!
We are looking forward to returning very soon. On this occasion we shall be on our own due to school holidays, but that won't be a problem - it is a perfect honeymoon location!
