            Individual guest reviews

            • Single
              7.8

              The staff was polite and alert. The pools were great.

              There was a private beach advertised on the web site; it did not exist. The outside bar staff could have inquired whether we wanted drinks towards the end of the day. There were too many screaming kids around. The food at the restaurant was just ok. The room service rarely vaccuumed and always forgot to leave enough towels and to replenish the supplies.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              The service in the Bar was terrible,I waited 15 minutes to get a drink at 10.00 pm,I complainted to the duty manager at the front desk. THe following nights the same problem persisted.The breakfast was dull and boring,therefore we assumed the lunch and dinner would be the same.

            • Family with children
              9.6

              The staff were really lovely and it was very child friendly without feeling as if it was a playgound. We had a really relaxing time.

              I am an artist and I love to see unique art work but sorry but I thought some of the art was really not very good

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Helpful staff in reception,good service and cuisine in the restaurant. Very attractive and unusual rooms.

              A bit hard to find.

              7.0

              Peace and quiet the first few days the staff were very obliging.

              The noise from the pool, indoor pool was out for maintenance lots of children running!!! About during breakfast and dinner. there was nothing to do after dinner no entertainment unless you went into town, just sport on the T.V. in bar.

              We liked the modern style and furniture of the hotel, clean lines no clutter

              Our Daughter loved the pool but selction of food for children wasnt great. Staff were pleasant but not very attentive or pro active. Rooms werent cleaned well, beds were changed every 2 days but bathrooms hardly touched. We did hire a car and so glad there is nothing but the beach which is 10min around
