the hotel was situated in a fantastic place, on the beach. the bar was overlooking the beach as was the restaurant, they were both very good. Our rooms were very clean if small with small windows, the air conditioning gave lots of problems. Unfortunately our rooms did not have balconys and were overlooking the backyard. Seaview rooms came at an extra rate which we were not prepared to pay that amount, it was quite a large sum.
The bar staff were very good, as were the reception. The cleaners were adequate, never saw them. The restaurant staff were too few and did not hurry to serve ladies on their own.A couple yes they were quick to serve, also no problem with serving men. We had instances when we were deliberately ignored. There was trouble getting a bottle of water to drink at lunch and evening time, they would fill one glass and had very frustrating experiences getting anymore. It was all inclusive and we were entitled to a bottle, but no! In the end we complained about this and lo and behold a bottle of water appeared the following day with the full attention of the
waiters.The food was always cold and terribly boring, the same thing every day. Even after most people complained it never got any better. Entertainment was sparce, twice a week, same every week. The pool was small not good if you are a swimmer. Would not recommend this hotel.
