November 2014

The layout of the resort is good, they had a lot of activities.

Where do I begin with such an awful experience: There are not enough personal for the demand of guest, we waited over an hour to be attended when we first arrived. Once they attended us, it turned out that the hotel assigned us an incorrect room and have promised to change the room on the next day. They never changed the room. My husband and I got a stomach bug by the second day and was barely able to leave the hotel room. We finally got better 4 days later. The decorations of the rooms of the hotel are outdated, the beds are old and hard, there are ants and half of the drawers did not want to open. This is not a four star hotel, maybe back in its time it was a great hotel, today it is a waste of time, money, physical and mental health. If you love yourself, do not go to this resort.

This was our ´´budget´´ choice for our stay-we were quite delighted. We go great rooms right on top of the water with a fun view of also pools. Restayurants were also on our floor! So no running around at all. Lovely staff, mostly European guests. We spend more money satying home!

Not alot of bad to say-they did not give us their daily activity sheet-or tell us to make reservations-but we got into restaurants 90% of time. Keep food choices simple-meat is a poor choice. Drinks weak-but that proved to be a plus! No hangovers.
