Firstly, as everyone else has said so far, the staff are by far the greatest asset of this hotel. Faultless.
However, there re some basic, minor issues that hold me back from giving a 5 star rating, and a couple of issues that, had it not been for the staff would probably have me rating it as a 3 star.
The rooms are basic. Comfortable, very clean, but basic.
The halls of the hotel are very echoey, thus all noise from surrounding comings and goings is exaggerated which can be quite load considering the last point below.
As pointed out below by several others there is a lack of shade by the pool. A couple of removable sombreros would make a massive difference.
Slightly bigger issues:
Breakfast. Again, as per the previous reviews this breakfast isnt great. The chef does a fantastic job with the lunch menu, I'm not sure if it is even the same person that provides the breakfast. Scrambled eggs are a disaster, and the only other cooked part of the breakfast; cocktail frankfurters & bacon (on alternating days) are over cooked to the death. Having said that, we ate breakfast in two other hotels on the island and the standard generally is a lot lower than what you would expect on the continent.
Weddings. By their very nature wedding parties are loud and rowdy. Had there been one in the time we were staying i'd have paid little attention to it and let life be life. However, there were 3 during our stay at the hotel. Coupled with the lack of noise insulation it really was a bit of an issue unfortunately.
Having said that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and overall, the hotel is pretty great. Fantastic staff, good location, the option of using the sister hotel by the beach is a nice touch, but with a few tweaks it could be almost faultless.
