Amazing for families
Perfect for a family holiday, especially with little kids. Beautiful beach, two great pools, very good food, great kids club. Only thing is there is a very big difference in your experience of the place depending on where your room is. Initially we got a ground floor room overlooking kids club and it was a disaster. We were moved to a quiet second floor room the next day and ended up loving it. Already booked our next stay.

Not a 5 star experience and HUGE dissapointment
I can tell you without any hesitation that is place is wrongly proclaimed 5 star hotel. I would rather consider it a 3 or 4 star with improvements to be made. 1) People at reception are not particularly friendly. You may pass next to them to exit or enter the hotel, they would ignore you. 2) We stayed in room 128. On our check-in day, as we were laying in bed, room service entered into our room without any notice nor knocking on the door. When they found out we were in, they walked back and just left our room without even saying a word! How shocking. We were undressed and this was clearly inappropriate. I had to get dressed and chase them in the corridor. They claimed they knocked on our door, which is NOT TRUE. It was silent and no one asked permission before entering. 3) The issue of hotel staff entering our room repeated itself EVERY SINGLE morning between 8 and 9am as we were sleeping. The cleaning lady was knocking and entering the room to clean our room as we were still in bed. Why so early? Why was there no disturb sign to be put on the doors! Really such a bad experience that left me a bad taste and the feeling that anyone could enter your room any time. 4) Impossible to find a sunbed to sit on. During our 5 night stay we kept wandering around for sunbeds. All of them are booked for special rooms all day long. And others are reserved by people who put towels on them to block them for hours even though no one is around. 5) Spa was tiny. 6) Gym was a joke with no A/C.

Not at all a 5 star property. We were super disappointed upon arrival with the hotel facilities and also our room which had a hospital style bathroom and no sunlight. The staff were great and upgraded us to a nicer room however unfortunately for this price range and a “5 star” status we were super disappointed. The gardens were not well maintained, you can only use the pool chairs dedicated to your specific room or by on of the pools (the older one which is not so nice), the gym is a joke for a hotel of this size there are maybe 5 pieces of equipment included, the buffet breakfast was very average and crowded. Personally this hotel was not what we were looking for - we won’t be back.

The garden is simply incredible and the beach is really beautiful. Take the time to explore the entire beach going further than just the area in front of the hotel: there are many surprises waiting for you. Finally, the staff is absolutely amazing
