This resort is built in 1987, and they haven't done much to it since. It looks quite nice from afar, but once you get inside, you see the worn out furnitures, wallpaper hanging loose from the walls and absolutely disgusting bathing facilities.
The restaurant was a dissapointment. Even local specialities were awful. Especially the breakfast, where everything was one notch worse than other places. I.e.: They don't serve regular fruitjuice, but some horrid too-sweet thing mixed up with water.
Saw the chef in the morning soup kitchen sneezing all over vegetables, plates etc .. only to laugh openly about this oh-so-funny experience in her nose. I was mortified. Saw another staff member (a waiter who also carried people's dirty plates away) arranging the fruit with his bare hands.
We didn't find one single staff member who spoke just remotely ok english.
We ended up moving to another hotel for the last days of our vacation, even though we paid for the stay from home. It was ruining an otherwise wonderful holiday on this beautiful island.
Don't stay there .. you'll get much higher standard for the same price at i.e. Sea View Resort.
