We probably didn't see the best of the hotel given we visited during the pandemic and most of the facilities were not open and the whole resort and area was like a ghost town.
The position of the hotel is fantastic - right by the beach and on a promenade walk - which I imagine in usual times has bars and restaurants lining it.
A beautiful large pool area with good quality sun loungers, a bar and a sea view was lovely and really clean. It was a little chilly when we went, so didn't swim.
We stayed in a deluxe studio and it was a lovely room with a balcony and a partial sea view. Very modern and well appointed with good air conditioning - but if you like privacy for the bathroom then not so good as the shower and the sink are in the main room, so little privacy in that regard - I personally prefer a private bathroom. The kitchen area was a bit gloomy with little natural light. Beds super comfortable and that is the main thing for me.
Buffet breakfast was great - beautiful selection of food and some cooked to order options.
The resort was so quiet with most bars and restaurants closed so we struggled to find places to eat.
My only criticism is that the receptionist was a bit surly on check in.
I imagine in usual times, this is a great hotel option and a premium one on the island. Unfortunately our 7 day break was cut to 2 when they closed the travel corridor, so we didn't get the best of it.
