This hotel is in a beautiful location - but it is outside the town which is walking distance but we had done a lot of travelling so were very happy to relax here - most of the rooms are suites with sitting rooms and kitchen - a lovely pool - staff are very helpful

The service was excellent from checking in until departure. The chalet was well furnished, comfortable and tidy. The location was found to be in a nice environment. The food (buffet) was enjoyable. Nothing specifically experienced as a dislike.

My only criticism is that it is a little out of town. We arrived on a tour and were to our delight allocated a villa located about a 100 yards from the main building.

We were lucky to be upgraded to a lagoon side suite. The stay was very pleasant. Unfortunately they were renovating/upgrading so there was a lot of construction noise. The breakfast was average (mushrooms oily!!!) and the service was sporadic. Most of the guests were package tour people arriving in big buses and crocodile marching with their heavy bags from the...

This place is a really nice building, nice pool and suites. However, It seems that the hotel is penny pinching as we had just a small packet of travel tissues in the room and no glasses in the bathroom. Toilet roll was just enough to last for our visit - not renewed. We were pleased to be given an upgrade...
