Had read previous reviews but one can only make ones own decision based on actually staying there. We had two wonderful weeks in March '14. The staff were excellent, location and beach perfect for all of us. Small is definitely beautiful. We met people who had been holidaying at the hotel in excess of 10 years so someone somewhere has got something right - as we found out.
There was a good variety of food at all meal times. Early evening cocktails every night before dinner - I think we tried everything on the menu & then some!
The air con in our room was a bit noisy - so we just switched it off at night.. You could see that there has been a lot of upgrading of the facilities and that it is on going which will only make the hotel even better. We were all inclusive but that did not stop us from sampling the local amenities! Look out for the return of the egrets each evening - an amazing sight.
Thank you all for a wonderful holiday - we would love to return sometime.
