We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of April. First impressions are wow...and it only gets better. A truly top intercontinental resorts, stylishly designed with beautiful wooden decor and amazing landscaping. We were upgraded and the room was huge and very luxurious with every you could possibly need and stunning views of the hotel and sea.
The restaurants options were good, the buffet breakfast was excellent with so much choice. The main restaurant had good dinner options and all well prepared and top quality. The BBQ by the beach was good, despite some teething problems on the opening night. We liked the free flow drinks options. Acqua was a highlight with a beautiful aquarium within the restaurant, book early to avoid disappointment.
The beach is stunning, but you cant swim. There is good shade provided as the sun is very strong.
The pools are great with an adult only option which we preferred. Be careful of the sun as the parasols by the pool do not offer much protection from the sun as we found out!
There are some issues with some staff not understanding English that well and it was frustrating that you couldn't charge items from the overpriced shop to your room. They should have cold water in the gym instead of the warm bottles provided. Providing bottled water at the pool would have been a nice touch, which we have been given at other similar hotels.
Apart from these minor points we absolutely loved this place.
