I stayed here for two nights and will not willingly return until the potential this hotel offers is met.
Check-in was delayed because rooms weren't cleaned which was a big inconvenience and the staff weren't apologetic.
In the villa, water was leaking over the bathroom floor from the hose. To the hotel's credit, they fixed it promptly, but having just had the room cleaned, this shouldn't have happened.
There were ants in the kitchen and no bottle opener to enjoy items from the mini bar.
Like many hotels in the region, this one is spaced out and requires a buggy to get around from the lower levels to the reception up the hill. Calling a buggy doesn't guarantee its arrival, sometimes you have to call twice because the message wasn't passed on.
Internet is not included and needs to be purchased separately at a high rate.
Breakfast is the best buffet of the day. Otherwise, the food is no different to any other buffet. If dining at an outdoor buffet, the food isn't hot, rather it is warm.
The resort is a relaxing place with nice surroundings, a good beach and a nice beach bar, but for my money, I won't return until the service improves. There is potential but poor service had a huge impact on my stay.
