Room wasn't ready at checkin Reception staff very friendly. Booked Two Night Summer Escape but didn't receive the wine or chocolates as part of the package. Room was tidy but not clean. Plates and glasses didn't match, appeared to be a mix match from other rooms

Booked this place on a Travelzoo deal over 8 months ago! A bit of a mix up at check in but it was resolved reasonably fast and everything has gone superbly since. Here for 7 nights and wish it was more. Only downside is that coffee and toiletries are not replenished (except for a fee) so come prepared. Kitchen well...

We bought a 5-night stay here through Trip-a-deal, another first for us. This really is a very nice resort to stay at! Smaller than Salt nearby, the resort seems nicely balanced. Shops including a supermarket have been built nearby and more are planned. Rooms are spacious and very well equipped. Ours had full kitchen facilities and a washing machine which...

We were greeted with a smile and no request was too much trouble. I loved the relaxed atmosphere, but the venue is so central to really good restaurants and shopping. The beach area is to die for! I will definitely be back for a longer stay next time.

We purchased a 2 night stay on a deal site to visit Santai retreat. Unfortunately, the online booking process defaults to a more expensive room first (especially on mobile). Then, because of the confirmation email (which doesn't take into account your voucher), you don't find out that you have booked the wrong room and still owe money upon arrival until...
