It certainly wasn't the five star hotel it's made out to be but the staff were on the whole extremely good. Little things added up to make it more like 3 to 4 star. Wobbly, noisy fan in room. Broken washing hanger, 1970's TV etc. Pools and bars were good and the beach location is excellent. One of the bars had a problem with wasps around the drinks dispensers which was not very pleasant. I must have drank about 3. As a previous reviewer has stated the smell of sewage after the sprinklers had been on was not very nice but dissipated quickly. Overall I found it a pleasant place to stay. I would go back but probably to one of the hotels next door.
