The hotel was built in a nice location with good views. It is however away from the beach and restaurants and you will need a car or you will be "grounded". The final touches are lacking and you can see that shortcuts were taken when finishing the resort (our room had two badly repaired water leaks).
The Internet is very poor and not working most of the time. In our unit there was only signal on the back patio at some hours of the day. During peak hours the network simply crashes and does not respond at all. In today's environment this should be a given and is simple enough to get right and should just work.
The rooms are noisy as you can hear all your neighbours due to poor insulation of the units. There is also an annoying light sensor in the passage that goes on every time you go to the bathroom and this can goes very bright in the middle of the night if you get up.
The pillows are uncomfortable.
Nice swimming pool.
I don't think this deserves a four stars as stated at the entrance. There are basics missing (i.e. kettle, safe).
the Spa is excellent and the massages are very good.
