Travelled in November with a friend. Staff very friendly, beach beautiful, diving excellent, even in winter warm water, one pool heated.

Coffee machines providing only hot water, terrible local "Nescafe" available, DIY type...

I spent my vacation there with my friends. A very good hotel with great staff who upgraded our rooms free of charge. The food wasn't very good but it was fine. The beach although far but was very nice and wasn't a trouble to get to.

Average standard with drawbacks with the food, cleanliness at the beach and the beach toilets, partial plastic in the water. Light in the bathroom too dark. Fish are fed by guests. Set up large warning signs with behavioral rules. Supervision by beach staff.

Same experience as during my last stay in April of this year. VERY kind staff, very relaxing atmosphere, the yoga session with the team-leader of the animation team on a small hill above the bay is a MUST to enjoy, even if you are not actively participating.
