I have stayed at this hotel several times. It has great service, staff are friendly. Rooms are comfortable. Only snag about the rooms is the twin beds, but when you talk to staff they are able to clip them. Great food. Close to the beach.

There were 2 Gala Dinners included in our over priced package but...

We stayed for a week and wished we had booked longer. The place was amazing, lovely pool, lots to do in the day and a beach that you can watch the sun rise and sunset. My boyfriend proposed to me whilst watching the sunset so this place will always be in my heart!
