The room itself was gorgeous, the pool is stunning, the staff are lovely, the bar is perfect, the little beach bars just outside the grounds are gorgeous and it is extremely clean.
The reason it didn't get five stars is purely down to the breakfast. The room itself was overcrowded, the cooked buffet wasn't fresh, looks like it had been sitting out for quite some time and very unappetising, the coffee also wasn't fresh or of a high quality - came straight from a push button machine. Overall breakfast , which is our favourite meal of the day , was quite stressfull and unenjoyable so we ended up going to the beach bars instead every morning.
Also the wifi system is awful - you get one code for 24 hours that you constantly have to reenter and it is of a very poor signal.
Overall though a beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting!
