As it was our first time at the hotel, we didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised! From the moment we entered the lobby and were greeted (Patricia, I think) we felt very welcome. Although it was August and the hotel was at capacity, the staff easily handled it. Here were the highlights:
Food - The menu at lunch and dinner provided for many options and all the food we tried was delicious (especially the fish). My wife has pretty serious food allergies and she felt comfortably the entire time. The chef came out to meet and assure her and everyone that served us seemed to be aware. Our favorite waiter was Christian who worked both lunch and dinner and would remember a wine we had two days prior.
Pool and Beach - Both the pool and beach were great fun. We normally started the mornings on the beach and switched to the pool in the afternoon. The hotel beach has sand unlike the rest of the beach which had primarily rocks. The pool is heated and nice sized. We never had to worry about seats at either since there always seem to be enough room to accommodate.
Room - We reserved two standard rooms and they were both very clean and comfortable. We tend to like it cold in the room when we sleep and the A/C system is great. In fact, we accidentally turned it a bit lower than we should and the room got very cold! The rooms looked out over the hotel grounds and pool (which are quite beautiful). If you stepped out on the balcony, the sea was also visible. The two areas of improvement that stood out would be the shower head (think very high pressure fire hose) and the key card system for entry (we had to exchange for new keys several times - thank you Patricia! I would consider these small sacrifices for an amazing experience.
We look forward to returning in the future.
