The plan was to stay the last 3 days of our honeymoon in this hotel. Arriving in the hotel did not mean a warm welcome. It took them 40 minutes to have our first drink ready. Making a proper cocktail was very hard. The fingerfood was horribly fried, fatty stuff. The bar was not used for days and dirty glasses were standing on it. They present their restaurant as being a high class fusion cooking place. Well, the only thing they could serve were shrimps, every time cooked in the same way. A lot of dishes were not available. They have an open kitchen which they better can close immediatelly as you see the cook walking around eating from a big bowl of rice.
Furthermore, the tenniscourt could not be used as it was full of contruction materials. In the gym there are 2 devices of which 1 is totally broke. And their 'Spa' (which they present like that on their website etc) is just 1 room with 2 beds on it.
The rooms are a little bit 'kitchy' and some maintenance is needed.
The location is great, right at the beach but the quality and service of this hotel is bad.
We left after one night.
On top of all we both heavy stomoach problems 1 days after we left and it took almost a week. I would not be surprised if this was caused by the food...
