This complex is very clean well run and pleasantly set. We chose the half board option and this was a big serious mistake. The food at this place is appalling - either tiny portions - or overcooked poorly presented meals slathered in some Knoor sauce that rendered each meal time with one major exception inedible. More importantly the service is dire - truly dire with the scruffy Cindy leaping about waling about how busy she is. We waited an hour for a main course on our last night and this was not the fault of the charming lady chef - it was all down to Cindy and I felt very let down and I shall not be going back. The roms are wonderful and clean and airy but there is nothing to do - nowhere to go and no activities organised within the complex. My wife received several unwanted and unprovoked advances from vulgar elderly men - one Irish famer being a particular pest, and indeed the pool area ressembled a nude care home for the advanced of age most days.
The breakfast however a re very good indeed and the general manager Maurice is a delight -helpful professional and well informed.
There is a wonderful botanical garden just 500 metres away and this was an amzing find free to enter and a wonderful secluded place.
We were hassled constantly by time share sellers and pickpockets - beware of various Africans offering to shake your hands - just barge through them.
